Carver green building code rejected  

Credit:  boston.com 6 June 2010 ~~

Residents at Town Meeting defeated a proposal to adopt an energy-saving building code that would have increased the costs of home construction but reduced annual energy costs. The so-called stretch code was mandated by the state’s Green Communities Act for towns seeking grants under the law. Town Meetings in Kingston and Duxbury recently approved the stretch code. Carver officials backing adoption of the stricter building standards said increased building costs would be paid off in savings in energy costs. However, opponents said government should not be adding regulations that burden businesses or individual home builders. – Robert Knox
