New Jersey Creates Green Task Force to Consolidate Efforts

New Jersey Department of Community Affairs (DCA) Commissioner Susan Bass Levin announced a Green Building Task Force to build on DCA’s nationally recognized green programs and policy initiatives while continuing to break new ground in those efforts.

The Task Force is in accordance with Governor Jon S. Corzine’s recent Executive Order to increase energy efficiency in state government. “Green affordable housing and renewable energy directly benefit individuals and families by lowering utility costs and creating healthier living environments,” said Levin. “It is important that we coordinate these nationally significant environmental efforts to ensure we achieve Governor Corzine’s mandate to increase energy efficiency in New Jersey.” The DCA Green Task Force will be composed of representatives from DCA’s Housing and Codes Divisions, the Housing and Mortgage Finance Agency (HMFA), New Jersey Redevelopment Authority (NJRA), and the New Jersey Meadowlands Commission (NJMC), and will consult with other departments across state government.
