Denver Mayor Formerly Opposes Green Roof Initiative

View here

Denver Mayor Michael Hancock has formally opposed Initiative 300, a ballot measure that would require many buildings in Denver to feature environment-friendly “green roof” amenities,

“While green roofs support many sustainability objectives, Initiative 300 is not the right approach for Denver,” Hancock’s office said in a statement made to members of the Denver City Council. “It goes too far, too fast and provides no flexibility or opportunity for carrots instead of sticks. By taking a mandate-only approach and eliminating the opportunity for options, the initiative would actually hinder efforts to pilot, promote, phase and incentivize green infrastructure, as is being done in many of our peer cities across the United States.”
