[GreenYes] legislation for revitalization to include reuse and recycling


Title: [GreenYes] legislation for revitalization to include reuse and recycling

One piece of legislation being prepared to address housing and vacant lands issues see below excerpt - directed to older urban communities suffering 20% population loss since 1970 - I was able to provide the language in items (6) and (7).

""To authorize the Secretary of Housing and Urban Development to make grants to assist local governments and others to address large-scale property vacancy and abandonment, and for other purposes.

SHORT TITLE.  This Act may be cited as the “Urban and Suburban Communities Regeneration Act of 2009”.

(6) establishment of recovered building materials reuse and recycling infrastructure, facilities, incentives, and technical support;
(7) establishment of local government purchasing requirements for deconstruction to make use of existing building materials stock in new and rehabilitation construction""
