About

This course will provide attendees with up-to-date information on the status of the LEED for Neighborhood Development Rating system, how it has helped shape LEED V4, how it has been specifically applied to local registered and certified projects in Massachusetts and how planners and developers are using the rating system as a tool to help regulate more sustainable neighborhood development.

The review of specific projects will look at the current status of two LEED ND pilots and where they are at now, as well as 3 new projects currently going through ND certification.

Participants will hear from presenters on some of the opportunities and challenges the ND rating system has presented, along with a focus on some of the most influential credits and prerequisites. The program will end with a look at how local governments in Boston and the surrounding region are using LEED ND as a guide and a way to help identify barriers to sustainable neighborhood development.
