Reach Codes 2.0: Ways To Learn And Get Involved
Los Altos passed its first version of Reach Codes two years ago. These greenhouse gas reducing improvements to the building code update every three years.
The cycle is starting now for Reach Codes 2.0, which would be implemented in January 2023. Regional utilities are working on producing a unified code that all cities can adopt to address climate change by reducing methane (natural gas) use. Los Altos is considering updating their current Reach Codes to be more aligned to the Bay Area regional code which we expect to be fully defined late this month.
There are several ways to learn the facts and get involved.
