Fast-Track Review for Green Construction

Tampa Green Fast Track Review is available to anyone wishing to build an environmentally sustainable or "green" project. Once approved, your plans are moved to the "front of the line" for review at the Construction Services Center.

There are two options for Tampa Green Fast Track Review:


Option A is available for any project, but required for commercial projects over 5,000 square feet. All commercial construction greater than 5,000 square feet must be registered with a third party rating system.

Option B, Tampa's Green Fast Track Checklist, is available for all residential projects and commercial projects under 5,000 square feet.

Please review the Tampa Green Fast Track Review form for directions on how to pursue either option.
