with Elizabeth Humstone
Since 2009, LEED for Neighborhood Development is used for rating sustainability for new developments and existing neighborhoods. Successful projects demonstrate:
- How the location in areas within or adjacent to existing development, transit water and sewer services
- How the location is designed for walkability
- How the protection of water resources, air quality and cultural & natural resources can minimize greenhouse gas emissions while promoting community and economic development.
The first section of the workshop discusses the key components of LEED-ND - Smart Location and Linkage, Neighborhood Planning and Design, and Green Infrastructure and Building. Following this discussion, participants will walk to a nearby neighborhood, to examine the application of some prerequisites and credits of LEED-ND on site.
*If field work is not permitted by weather, an example will be presented in the workshop.
