LEED ND: Built Project | v1 - LEED 1.0 pilot

Access to surrounding vicinity

NPDc11 | Possible 1 point


Provide direct and safe connections, for pedestrians and bicyclists as well as drivers, to local destinations and neighborhood centers. Promote public health by facilitating walking and bicycling.


Design and build projects such that there is at least one through-street at the project boundary every 800 feet, or at existing abutting street intervals, whichever distance is smaller. This does not apply to connections that cannot physically be made; e.g. wetlands, rivers, railroads, extreme topography, natural gas lines, pipeline easements, highways, expressways and other limited-access roads
