Township 9 LEED-ND assessment
Land Use Clinic: Capstone Course // Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies // Spring 2015
This Township Nine LEED-ND Recommendations Study is intended as an input into the neighborhood planning process. It is based on the LEED-ND Rating System (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design - Neighborhood Development), a new national rating system for creating sustainable neighborhoods, developed by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), in collaboration with the Natural Resources Defense Council and the Congress for New Urbanism.
This Recommendations Study begins with an overview of the project and the study area, including additional information about the LEED-ND Rating System. This is followed by a LEED-ND assessment of Township 9, including a summary of its key assets, challenges and steps to improve.
