Councilwoman Andrea Bough and City staff will host a Public Information and Input Session on the proposed adoption of the new energy efficient building code (the IECC 2021), ordinance 220364 today, Wednesday, May 25 at 4 p.m., or when Neighborhood, Planning, & Development committee concludes.

Staff presentation on proposed updates to the building code, how the code interacts with the proposed climate change plan, and an opportunity for interested parties to give input.

The session is open to all interested parties. The City Council of Kansas City has previously expressed goals of reducing greenhouse gas emissions and to become climate neutral by 2040, in order to protect the health and welfare of our residents.

The City is currently updating its Climate Protection and Resiliency Plan to realize those goals. Adoption of a new energy efficient building code that sets minimum energy efficiency requirements will help reduce carbon emissions and provide healthier and more affordable places for our citizens to live, work, and play.
