In March 2008, the Chamblee City Council voted unanimously to require all private development 20,000 square feet or greater to become LEED certified. Additionally, all future municipal buildings regardless of size must also be LEED certified. Green Globes certification is also allowed in lieu of LEED certification.

Chamblee is the first city in the State of Georgia to mandate LEED certification for private development. In addition to public buildings, this requirement applies to commercial buildings, offices, industrial buildings, multiple residences and senior citizen multiple residences. LEED certification is mandatory for commercial building permit applications received by the City on or after April 1, 2009.
