Greening our city: Improving the LEED standards
You might be familar with LEED. It's the very popular national standards for green construction. We like how LEED supports walking, bicycling and transit. But we think LEED could go further in promoting sustainable school siting, reducing automobile dependence and otherwise making our communities healthier, safer and more environmentally friendly.
The U.S. Green Building Council, the gurus of LEED, are currently soliciting comments on the latest version of LEED. We couldn't resist sharing our thoughts with them. Check out our suggestions and feel free to contact USGBC with your own ideas.
