Tour Looscan Neighborhood Library, Certified Green Building

You are invited to attend the first tour in the second year of a series of free, public tours of certified green buildings here in Houston.  The tour will take place on Tuesday, March 31, 2009, every 30 minutes from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at the Looscan Neighborhood Library, near Westheimer Road at 2510 Willowick Road, Houston, Texas 77027.  Please visit www.houstontx.gov/mayor/leedtour.pdf  for more details and a map.

Green buildings save owners and users money with greater energy efficiency. They are better for our environment with more re-use of material. Ultimately, they foster a happier and healthier workplace for employees. To help us along this path, the City of Houston has put together the Mayor's Green Building Advisory Council in partnership with companies that have led the way in green building and achieved certification of their facilities according to LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) green building rating standards.  City staff is currently working to implement recommendations from the MGBAC to the Mayor to help accelerate green building across the city.  

We very much welcome your participation in this event and your interest and support for green building efforts across Houston. For more information on the Green Building Tour, please contact Steve Stelzer at 713-535-7508 or e-mail at steve.stelzer@cityofhouston.net.
