HELP US ASSESS & IMPROVE ZONE GREEN

Five years ago, NYC adopted Zone Green based on recommendations from the Urban Green-led Green Codes Task Force. These innovative zoning amendments facilitated green practices—from better-insulated walls to allowances for sun control devices. It’s now time for an assessment and perhaps a tune-up.

If your firm utilized Zone Green provisions for a project, please take the time to fill out our survey about your experience. The information will help us assess the effectiveness of Zone Green and pinpoint areas for potential improvement. Please submit only one survey response per firm.
