Today the Sustainable Sites Initiative opened the final public review of the SITES Guidelines and Performance Benchmarks. This new site and landscape certification system, modeled on and collaborative with LEED, will go live in 2013.
Your comments are welcome. The initiative group would like to ensure the proposed set of credits are robust, clear and feasible in the marketplace, while at the same time raising the bar for sustainable site design, construction and maintenance.
The public comment period will close at 5:00 p.m. CST on November 5, 2012.
