Two New Resources Help Implement LEED-ND

Traditional zoning codes have created low-density sprawl, which has resulted in habitat loss, high fuel use for transportation, and other issues.

Now the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) and the Land Use Law Center at Pace Law School have developed two documents to help local governments “zone in” sustainability measures that are often “zoned out” by existing codes, potentially allowing them to achieve certification under the LEED for Neighborhood Development (LEED-ND) rating system, according to Land Use Law Center founder John Nolon.
