Green Roofs:Chicago

A quick note about Chicago's innovative program to provide incentives for green roofs--a new type of open space that reduced heat island effects, retains stormwater, regulates stormwater runoff and provides insulations. Perhaps the incentive program came after the successful and much-acclaimed installation of a green roof above City Hall.

In Seattle, our City Hall's green roof is plugging along. And a quick web search reveals that Councilmember Steinbrueck, as of June 2005, is planning on introducing changes that provide the same incentives for Seattle.
