Monday, Oct. 28, 2019 | 5:00 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. | Aupuni Center Conference Room, 101 Pauahi Street

Earlier this year the 2015 International Energy Conservation Code (IECC) became effective in order to meet the State’s energy reduction and clean energy goals. Each county has the ability to amend the state code to local conditions with Maui and Kaua‘i counties adopting administrative amendments. The City and County of Honolulu adopted amendments to the IECC last wee

Having received approval from Corporation Counsel to amend the state code as applicable, Public Works is holding these facilitated SpeakOut sessions to seek input from design and construction professionals. At the event, community members can provide input to Public Works Building Division staff regarding possible amendments with justifications. Input from the SpeakOut sessions will help guide proposed amendments that DPW may submit to the County Council for approval in the later part of this year.
As an option to help facilitate the process, SpeakOut attendees are welcome to comments on proposed amendments with the following written information:
● proposed code amendment (i.e., deletion / addition),
● justification for the amendment(s), and
● contact information for additional follow-up.

Prior to the meetings, we’ll be sending you an email with a link to the draft code amendments on the County website. For more information, contact

We look forward to seeing you on the 28th and/or the 29th.
