How to build a home under LEED regulations.

The U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) Board of Directors has voted unanimously to open LEED 2009 for public comment. This is a huge step in the right direction to improve upon an already hugely successful program in the much needed green building movement. The LEED Green Building Rating System is an ever-evolving process and they realize that fact. Thus, the invitation to public comment/suggestions.

The meeting will cover 3 main areas:

  • LEED 2009 – LEED Rating System updates/revisions
  • Revision and Evolution of the LEED Certification process
  • LEED online v3

You’ve got to hurry, though. The meeting is this Wednesday, June 11, 2008 at 2 PM EDT. Here’s all the info listed below that you’ll need to have your voice heard.

First and foremost, you should read a few documents prior to the LEED 2009 meeting.
