Reach Codes are local code requirements that exceed the Energy Code and Green Building Standards Code. The adoption of Reach Codes aims to reduce greenhouse gas emissions (GHGs) by reducing reliance on natural gas and gasoline through refocusing energy consumption towards electrification.
At the March 8, 2022 City Council meeting, Staff recommended all-electric Reach Codes to apply to new construction. To align with the direction of the State's goal in reducing reliance on natural gas and gasoline, City Council provided feedback to recommend the adoption of all-electric Reach Codes. The City seeks community feedback to evaluate how the proposed Reach Codes may impact new construction for residents, businesses, and developers prior to adopting an ordinance.
