Heat Island Community Actions Database (EPA)
"EPA maintains the Community Actions Database to help communities learn about actions they can take to reduce heat islands. The database includes dozens of examples of state and local voluntary initiatives (e.g. demonstration projects, incentives, outreach and education, awards) and mandatory policies (e.g. ordinances, comprehensive plans and design guidelines, zoning codes, building codes) for advancing heat island cooling strategies. The database can be sorted by region or activity and is searchable by key word, allowing users to explore actions by region or type."
