Piloting Forward: LEED For Neighborhood Development*
LEED for Neighborhood Development (LEED-ND) is a rating system designed by the CNU, USGBC and NRDC to encourage walkable, transit-oriented and green neighborhood design. Pilot projects have now been chosen that meet entry thresholds. LEED-ND authors recognize that some projects meeting the intent remain unsubmitted due to one or more prerequisites. Join them as they review the rating system, prerequisites, and certification process and discuss the value of LEED-ND to developers, planners, and municipalities.
