NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT ORDAINED BY THE BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS OF MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, FLORIDA, that:

Section 1. Chapter 8 of the Code of Miami-Dade County is hereby amended by the creation of a new section 8-6 as follows:1
* * *
>>Section 8-6. Expedited permit program for green buildings.


It is the intent of Miami-Dade County to promote environmentally sensitive design and construction. To that end, the Building Official shall implement a program to expedite the review and approval of permit applications for green buildings. As used in this Section a green building shall mean one whose design, construction, and operation promote the preservation of resources and environmentally sensitive construction practices, systems and materials. In making the determination of whether the structure is a green building, the Building Official shall rely on the review, evaluation and where available registration or certification of the design by recognized environmental rating agencies including the Florida Green Building Coalition, the National Home Builder Association and the U.S. Green Building Council. The green buildings program shall be implemented through administrative order to be approved by the Board of County Commissioners.<<

Section 2. If any section, subsection, sentence, clause or provision of this ordinance is held invalid, the remainder of this ordinance shall not be affected by such invalidity.
Section 3. It is the intention of the Board of County Commissioners, and it is hereby ordained that the provisions of this ordinance, including any Sunset provision, shall become and be made a part of the Code of Miami-Dade County, Florida. The sections of this ordinance may be renumbered or re-lettered to accomplish such intention, and the word "ordinance" may be changed to "section," "article," or other appropriate work.
Section 4. This ordinance shall become effective 10 days after the date of enactment unless vetoed by the Mayor, and if vetoed, shall become effective only upon an override by this Board.
1 Words stricken through and/or [[double bracketed]] shall be deleted. Words underscored and/or >>double arrowed<< constitute the amendment proposed. Remaining provisions are now in effect and remain unchanged.
