The single greatest environmental benefit that LEED for Neighborhood Development projects can produce is climate change mitigation. Of the 56 LEED-ND credits, 38 have carbon reduction effects through less building and transportation energy use, more efficient infrastructure, and neighborhood use of renewable resources. This presentation includes an overview of neighborhood energy demands and sources, a tour of the LEED-ND rating system, and a Sacramento infill case study that uses 19 credits to lower greenhouse gas emissions by 30%.

For the first time we have a critical mass of elected officials who recognize the urgent need for new revenue sources to resolve the ongoing deficit in the King County budget. Now, we must use this growing momentum to insist that a long term funding solution for community health and human services be identified and implemented to restore funding to an acceptable base level. This will be a significant public policy change that will allow for stable funding for urgently needed services across the county.
