July’s Salon will address LEED for Neighborhood Development (LEED-ND), a joint venture of the USGBC and the Natural Resource Defense Council (NRDC) that integrates the principles of new urbanism, green building, and smart growth into the first national standard for neighborhood design.
The topic will explore the Rating System itself, how it was developed, and will look at some strategies used on local redevelopment projects in Albuquerque.
