Here's the link to the NW Green Home Tour website:
City Hall is one of Kenmore's first projects developed under the U.S. Green Building Council's Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification standards. City Hall sets the bar for the future development of the city's downtown and reflects the community's interest in sustainable development. Kenmore City Hall received LEED Gold Certification.
The City Hall facility includes Council Chambers, community meeting room, city administration offices and space within the building for future expansion. The building is an "essential facility" designed to a higher seismic performance than standard buildings, and includes emergency power generation. Additionally, the Council Chambers, community meeting room and conference rooms serve as a resource to the residents of Kenmore for community and club events.
