St. Lucie County Earns Florida Green Building Coalition Green Government Award

Post Date:04/03/2018 8:42 AM

The St. Lucie County Board of County Commissioners was recognized by the Florida Green Building Coalition (FGBC) as a high scoring local government at the county level at the organization’s Annual Florida Green Awards banquet recently. 

St. Lucie County finished in second place in the Green County category with a score of 46.3 behind Manatee County, which became the first and only county in Florida to achieve Platinum level certification.

St. Lucie County was first designated as a Gold Level Green County in 2010 at a time when only five other Florida counties had received this prestigious recognition. In 2017, St. Lucie County increased its score from 43.33 percent to 46.34 percent, dropping down to Silver Level certification due to changes in the FGBC scale requiring 51 percent for gold. 

The FGBC uses a standard of criteria to evaluate performance in implementing policies and programs in the areas of energy, water, air, land, waste and education/awareness. St. Lucie County was evaluated using a point system, achieving Silver Level certification for its exceptional stewardship and sustainability initiatives.  

Many of the policies and programs that led to St. Lucie County's recertification included the environmentally significant lands program, innovative land planning codes and policies, the Solar and Energy Loan fund and numerous educational and community outreach programs. Additional credits were earned from the county's implementation of green cleaning and landscaping policies, artificial reef and oyster bed programs, stormwater improvement efforts, single-stream recycling and more.
