TAMPA GREEN FAST TRACK REVIEW CHECKLIST INSTRUCTIONS
Available for all residential construction and commercial construction less than 5,000 square feet.
Your project must achieve at least 50 points for Tampa Green Fast Track Review.
IMPORTANT: Prior to your scheduled meeting, each checked item must be highlighted on your plans and the page
number where each can be found must be indicated in the spaces provided below. Certain items that may not be
evident on your plans can be satised with the attached Commitment Letter (see page 5).
If your project includes a swimming pool/spa and/or is waterfront you must meet the prerequisites as listed
below. Prerequisites do not count toward the overall 50 points.
Because design strategies for sustainability are constantly evolving and changing, we have provided space at the
end of the checklist (at the bottom of page 4) so you may include items you feel warrant consideration toward
the overall points.
The Tampa Green Fast Track Review Checklist is NOT a rating system, it is a means whereby city staff can
determine if a project meets certain sustainability criteria as to warrant a faster plan review.
REQUIRED PREREQUISITES: These are only required if you are installing a swimming pool or are building on
waterfront property. (Prerequisites do not count toward the 50 points.)
