This past summer the Citizens for a Loring Park Community (CLPC) conducted a survey of the Loring Park neighborhood to evaluate the potential for part of the community to become Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design for Neighborhood Development (LEED-ND) certified. The information collected this summer will be used to inform future planning for the neighborhood, including a master planning process this fall. In this presentation, project members shared their experience of applying LEED-ND to an existing urban community.

Topics addressed included:

  • Conclusions and analysis from the Loring Park neighborhood study
  • Advantages and disadvantages of LEED-ND in the context of an existing community
  • Challenges of and strategies for collecting data
  • LEED-ND as part of a master planning process
