Green Buildings
In 2006, council adopted the Sustainable Building Policy for the siting, design, hiring of contractors, operation and maintenance of City buildings. This included requirements that any city-owned and -operated buildings, 10,000 square feet in size and larger, achieve a "Silver" LEED certification.

Prior to this resolution, the City had already undertaken design and construction of the Eugene Public Library and two fire stations, incorporating energy efficient features and many other sustainable design features.
