Mr. Griswold reported that he was approached by Mr. Block, a member of a legislative committee, regarding the usefulness of a publication similar to the “Green Book” from Washington state.  The book is “Guidelines for Building Departments and Design Professionals”.  For a similar publication in Idaho it would require a cooperative effort between the building departments and each Board of Design Professionals.  The Board determined they would be willing to work on this type of publication.
