Summary

The Dallas Green Building Program establishes expedited permitting for green buildings. During Phase 1 of the program (October 1, 2009 - September 30, 2011), applicants must provide a checklist from Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) , Green Built Texas, or any other approved green building standard. The checklist must show that the project is eligible to obtain a certification under LEED standards. Beginning October 1, 2013 (Phase 2), all project applicants must provide a checklist that shows that the project is eligible for LEED Silver or higher. Applicants may use another approved green building standard during this phase as well.

Applicants do not actually have to register or certify their projects with the green building standard they have selected, but simply demonstrate that their projects would qualify.
