SolSmart Designees


SolSmart Bronze
Population: 22,600
Designation Level: SolSmart Bronze
Year Designated: 2017
  • 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
I think this designation is more than an award. It's a signal to developers that we're open to solar businesses.
