In 2009, the Jacksonville City Office of Sustainability Initiatives announced the creation of the Sustainable Building Program. As part of the program, all new city-owned buildings must meet nationally recognized certification standards. In addition, in city-owned buildings where renovations are being made to more than 50% of the total building square footage, renovations must meet sustainable building certification standards. The buildings must be certified by LEED, Green Globes, or Florida Green Building Coalition. The Jacksonville Environmental Protection Board is also permitted to adopt an alternative sustainable building certification system.
Any program participant seeking sustainable building certification through the City of Jacksonville can seek a refund of certification expenses, sustainable project designation and fast track development review.
