The IgCC requires the developers to choose and comply with provisions of code called
electives.

The number of electives varies with the size of the proposed building (under 10,000
gross floor area (GFA)- 2 electives; between 10,000 and 20,000 GFA -3 electives; over 20,000
GFA- 4 electives). The amended regulation would allow LEED Silver certification to replace the

Code; and generally amend the law relating to buildings, energy efficiency

the County Code, and the Department of Permitting Services adopted
Executive Regulation 19-07 to enforces the requirements. The
Department proposed Executive regulation 21-1 SAM for adoption of
International Green Construction Code (IgCC) which makes green
buildings an integral part of the county building codes and the County
Green Building Law is no longer necessary.

BILLXX-17
1.
Bill Summary
Bill XX-17 will repeal Article VII of Chapter 8, the Montgomery County Green Building
law, of the Montgomery County Code; and generally amend the law relating to buildings,
energy efficiency and environmental design.
The County Executive submitted Executive Regulation 21-lSAM for Council's
consideration in September 2016. County Council extended the review time
for
Executive Regulation 21-lSAM until June 30, 2017. This regulation adopts the 2012
International Green Construction Code (IgCC), with amendments,
as
the energy
conservation and sustainability design standard in Montgomery County, and supersedes
Executive Regulation 19-07AM.
With the adoption of the IgCC, Article
VII
of Chapter
8
is no longer necessary
as
the
IgCC sets a higher performance baseline and applies to
a
broader spectrum of
construction.

Economic Impact Statement
Bill ##-17, Draft Bill Title (no title)
Background:
This legislation would:
Repeal Article VII of Chapter 8 of the Montgomery County Code; and
Amend the law related to buildings, energy efficiency, and environmental design.
In
2007, Montgomery County codified Chapter 8, Article VII, Buildings - Energy Efficiency and
Environmental Design, and the Montgomery County Department of Permitting Services (DPS)
adopted Executive Regulation 19-07 for enforcement of the requirements in Chapter
8,
Article
VII.
DPS proposes Executive Regulation 21-lSAM to adopt the recent International Green
Construction Code (IgCC) that makes green buildings an integral part of the County building
codes and, thereby, making the County Green Building Law (Chapter
8,
Article
VII)
unnecessary. Bill
##-17
repeals Chapter
8,
Article
VII
as it is replaced by Executive Regulation
21-lSAM.
1. The sources of information, assumptions, and methodologies used.
Source of information includes the Department of Permitting Services (DPS). According
to
DPS, the lgCC is pending adoption
as
an overlay building code which will render the
existing Green Buildings Law obsolete.
2. A description of any variable that could affect the economic impact estimates.
There are no variables that could affect the economic impact estimates.
3. The Bill's positive or negative effect, if any on employment, spending, savings,
investment, incomes, and property values in the County.
Since the new
green
building construction code
as
reflected in
ER 21-1
SAM effectively ·
replaces the current law, this legislation would have no economic impact on employment,
spending, savings, investment, incomes, and property values
in
the County.
4.
If
a Bill is likely to have no economic impact, why is that the case?

the County Code, and the Department of Permitting Services adopted
Executive Regulation 19-07 to enforces the requirements. The

International Green Construction Code (IgCC) which makes green
buildings an integral part of the county building codes and the County

BILLXX-17
1.
Bill Summary
Bill XX-17 will repeal Article VII of Chapter 8, the Montgomery County Green Building
law, of the Montgomery County Code; and generally amend the law relating to buildings,
energy efficiency and environmental design.
The County Executive submitted Executive Regulation 21-lSAM for Council's
consideration in September 2016. County Council extended the review time
for
Executive Regulation 21-lSAM until June 30, 2017. This regulation adopts the 2012
International Green Construction Code (IgCC), with amendments,
as
the energy
conservation and sustainability design standard in Montgomery County, and supersedes
Executive Regulation 19-07AM.
With the adoption of the IgCC, Article
VII
of Chapter
8
is no longer necessary
as
the
IgCC sets a higher performance baseline and applies to
a
broader spectrum of
construction.

Economic Impact Statement
Bill ##-17, Draft Bill Title (no title)
Background:
This legislation would:
Repeal Article VII of Chapter 8 of the Montgomery County Code; and
Amend the law related to buildings, energy efficiency, and environmental design.
In
2007, Montgomery County codified Chapter 8, Article VII, Buildings - Energy Efficiency and
Environmental Design, and the Montgomery County Department of Permitting Services (DPS)
adopted Executive Regulation 19-07 for enforcement of the requirements in Chapter
8,
Article
VII.
DPS proposes Executive Regulation 21-lSAM to adopt the recent International Green
Construction Code (IgCC) that makes green buildings an integral part of the County building
codes and, thereby, making the County Green Building Law (Chapter
8,
Article
VII)
unnecessary. Bill
##-17
repeals Chapter
8,
Article
VII
as it is replaced by Executive Regulation
21-lSAM.
1. The sources of information, assumptions, and methodologies used.
Source of information includes the Department of Permitting Services (DPS). According
to
DPS, the lgCC is pending adoption
as
an overlay building code which will render the
existing Green Buildings Law obsolete.
2. A description of any variable that could affect the economic impact estimates.
There are no variables that could affect the economic impact estimates.
3. The Bill's positive or negative effect, if any on employment, spending, savings,
investment, incomes, and property values in the County.
Since the new
green
building construction code
as
reflected in
ER 21-1
SAM effectively ·
replaces the current law, this legislation would have no economic impact on employment,
spending, savings, investment, incomes, and property values
in
the County.
4.
If
a Bill is likely to have no economic impact, why is that the case?
