Sustainable Code Framework

The Sustainable Code Framework is a resource to help local governments identify code strategies that match the vision they have for their community. The Sustainable Code Framework allows communities to explore different code options based on their development objectives. The framework also contains a database of existing projects that demonstrate many of the sustainable principles communities desire. These projects are for the most part local so communities can actually see the projects and how they integrate into local communities.

The Sustainable Code Framework website launched in March 2014.

The development of the Sustainable Code Framework was made possible through a U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Community Challenge Planning Grant. The final report and the eight community code audits (using the Sustainable Code Framework’s 22 sustainable development concepts) are below.
