Aligning Sustainability Plans with LEED for Cities and Communities
Local governments continually make decisions, expenditures, and investments that affect community sustainability. The strength of local decision making is informed by community input, public planning efforts, and internal coordination across departments and agencies. Effective practices and processes are therefore critical to ensure that local decisions lead to sustainable outcomes and do not unfairly burden particular constituencies. This tool supports alignment efforts with master plans, sustainability plans, climate action plans and other local plans that take a triple bottom line approach to sustainability.
