Professional Development Sessions
PD #1: Advancing TDM through LEED and Other Recognition Programs

Part of the foundation of successful transportation alternatives is having the infrastructure in place to support them.  Land developers, property owners and employers are uniquely positioned to provide on-site infrastructure and associated programs to encourage and support the use of alternative transportation by tenants and employees.  The Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) program of the U.S. Green Building Council is one of the most well-known green building certification programs that provides recognition and value to land development.  LEED features a comprehensive scoring system that...
