A Citizen's Guide to LEED for Neighborhood Development: How to Tell If Development is Smart and Green
This guide is a helpful tool for anyone who has ever wondered whether proposed or existing developments in their communities are actually good for the neighborhood and the environment -- and what should be done about them.
The guide introduces the U.S. Green Building Council's Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design standard for neighborhood development to a broader audience.
The USGBC formally launched LEED-ND as a national benchmark for sustainable community design in April 2010 after a pilot of nearly three years. The standard was developed by the NRDC, the Congress for the New Urbanism and the USGBC.
