According to 9News “Not one green roof has been added to Denver since city passed ‘Green Roof Initiative.'”
“What it has done, however, is basically freeze construction and replacement of the large building roofs covered by the new green mandate…”
No kidding. This is exactly what the opposition to the costly initiative said would happen. In addition, the initiative drives up the price of construction, thereby driving up the price of housing. Many of the same people touting the Green Roof Initiative undoubtedly were among those decrying the lack of affordable housing in Denver.
So what did they do? The drove up the price of affordable housing.
Of course. That’s how fantasies work.
