"As extreme weather events become more frequent and more severe due to climate change, our construction codes must allow for flexibility in cooling and heating systems to protect the residents who live and work within them," said Mayor Lightfoot. "These new cooling requirements are an important step forward in keeping all of our residents safe, particularly those most vulnerable to extreme heat, while improving their quality of life."
"I commend the leadership of Mayor Lightfoot and Alderwoman Hadden on this vital legislation and look forward to working with property owners and property managers to implement these safety and quality of life measures," said Matthew Beaudet, Commissioner of the Department of Buildings.
