Join the USGBC Illinois South Suburban Branch for an in-person webinar on ND 201: LEED for Neighborhood Development: Sustainability Beyond Building: LEED For Neighborhood Development: A Tool to Retrofit the Suburbs. This session is approved for 1.5 hours of LEED Specific (ND) GBCI hours as well as 1.5 AIA/CES LU/HSW/SD hours.

The Illinois Chapter has purchased a subscription to offer USGBC's archived webinars in group settings in order to offer LEED Specific credential maintenance opportunities to our members. The third Friday of each month, you will have the opportunity to earn 1.5 LEED Specific hours at one of these in-person webinar viewings.

Session 3 Description ND 201: A Tool to Retrofit the Suburbs - The global economic crisis has shown that the rampant outward growth of most American metropolitan regions is both environmentally and financially unsustainable. With large retailers going out of business and many suburban jurisdictions looking to alter their zoning codes and encourage more compact development, there are many opportunities to create walkable, urban places in the suburbs. Learn how LEED for Neighborhood Development can be used as an urban design tool in appropriate suburban locations to encourage this type of development through certified pilot case studies.
