Release of Local Law 86 of 2005 Fiscal Year 2010 Annual Report
Local Law 86 of 2005, New York City's Green Building Standards Law, requires the preparation of a report each year on the capital projects subject to its provisions. To provide a comprehensive assessment of the effects of LL86, this annual report covers projects that started design from the time the law took effect until June 30, 2010, the end of Fiscal Year 2010 (FY10). Estimated project costs, construction costs, floor area, and FY10 capital allocations by agency are reported. For a subset of projects that have completed design, the report documents anticipated benefits, such as reductions in greenhouse gas emissions, energy cost, storm water runoff, and potable water use, as well as the incremental first costs related to achieving the law’s LEED® rating level and energy cost reduction requirements.

Amendment of Green Building Standards Rules
In April 2007, the Rules that implement Local Law 86 of 2005 were published as final rules. These rules defined the 'selected green building rating system' as New Construction version 2.2, Existing Buildings version 2.0, or Commercial Interiors version 2.0 of the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED®) building rating system published by the U.S. Green Building Council, whichever is most appropriate for the project under the Council's guidelines. In 2009, the U.S. Green Building Council updated its green building rating systems, to the version 3 LEED® 2009 suite of five rating systems. The purpose of this amendment is to update the rules to define the 'selected green building rating system' as this most current version published by the U.S. Green Building Council. The rule change was published in the City Record on May 22, 2009.
