Designation Level: SolSmart Silver
View Designee Website
Created an online permitting checklist, increasing transparency for community members and solar installers.
Reviewed local zoning codes and identified restrictions that intentionally or unintentionally prohibit solar PV development
Allowed solar by-right accessory use in all zones (so solar installations don’t require special permits or hearings)
Cross-trained both inspection and permitting staff on solar PV
We are so excited to have been designated as a SolSmart Silver community...We take great pride in our sustainability initiative and efforts in moving towards a more green and eco-friendly city.
