Sustainable Building
What La Mesa is Doing
In 2004, the La Mesa Sustainable Building Task Force was established to evaluate the feasibility of integrating sustainable building techniques into all new publicly and privately financed commercial, multi-family, and residential buildings as well as major retrofits of these buildings types. Sustainable building techniques use generally accepted industry standards including, but not limited to, the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) standards.

Task Force members were composed of representatives from various fields within the building industry, non-profit organizations, and others. The Task Force issued a report back to the City Council which included policy recommendations promoting reasonable sustainable building within the city.

City of La Mesa Sustainable Building Policy
On January 10, 2006 the La Mesa City Council approved a Sustainable Building Policy that was recommended by the Sustainable Building Task Force. Read about Construction and Demolition Recycling and how it affects sustainable building.
