Anchorage Municipal Code Chapter 23.05, Ordinance 93
Anchorage, AK
Requirement, Incentive
Minimum certification level: LEED Silver
In 2008, the Anchorage Assembly adopted Ordinance 2008-93, requiring all new municipal buildings - including private construction for municipal leasing or renting - and major renovation of municipal buildings to earn LEED certification. In 2012, the code was amended to increase the minimum required certification level to LEED Silver. The ordinance also required all Anchorage public schools exceeding 5,000 square feet to earn LEED certification. To incentivize certification, building permitting fees for public and private projects were refunded: 10% for projects that earned LEED certification, 15% for projects that earned LEED Silver, 22.5% for projects that earned LEED Gold, and 35% for projects that earned LEED Platinum. The ordinance was repealed in 2011 by Ordinance 2011-4(S-1).
