2023 Reach Code - Information and Discussion                                                          





That the Council Sustainability Committee (CSC) reviews and comments on this report and provides direction to staff.





Hayward’s current Reach Code will expire on December 31, 2022. To continue the current requirements that prohibit or limit the use of natural gas in new buildings and to continue to require electric vehicle charging infrastructure beyond what is required in the State building code, a new ordinance will need to be adopted. On March 14, 2022, the CSC considered potential elements that may be included in a new Reach Code. This report presents additional considerations for new non-residential buildings and for electric vehicle charging requirements.
