New York City just got a little Greener

Yesterday, Urban Green and advocates of green buildings in New York City had a new reason to celebrate: the City Council passed five more of the Building Resiliency Task Force proposals into law:

BRTF #8: Prevent Sewage Backflow BRTF #10: Clarify Construction Requirements in Flood Zones BRTF #12: Analyze Wind Risks BRTF #13: Capture Stormwater to Prevent Flooding BRTF #24: Ensure Toilets & Sinks Work Without Power

This steps are critical to ensuring New York is better equipped to withstand climate change's increasingly severe effects.

You can follow the status of the remaining Task Force proposals on Urban Green's Proposal Tracker, or read more about on its blog. And if you can't get enough - think about attending its Resiliency Conference next Monday!
