Woot, woot! After passing a historic reach code in September requiring new construction to be more energy-efficient, the San Jose City Council is expected to vote on October 29th on two supplementary policies to:
(1) require all-electric construction for new single-family homes, low-rise residential buildings, and Accessory Dwelling Units (ADUs) and
(2) require all-electric construction for new municipal buildings.
This is a key step to reduce greenhouse gas pollution and ensure cleaner indoor air, protecting both our climate and our health.
Join us to show our Councilmembers that residents want them to lead the way to a climate-safe future by following through and approving these supplementary policies now, without delay!
We'd appreciate it if you'd RSVP below so we know who's coming & share any last-minute updates.
Note that these policies will be considered very early on the agenda (Item 2.10). If they are pulled from the "consent" calendar, public comments will be taken right then, around 1:45pm. So we'll gather outside the Council Chambers at 1:30pm and then sit together near the front.
Thanks for helping to preserve a livable climate and protect residents’ health and safety!
