Heather L. Venhaus posted an update in the group LEED in Landscape Architecture 13 years, 1 month ago
Hey Folks! Just a quick note to say hello and introduce myself. After completing the 2009 report, I resigned as project manager of the Sustainable Sites Initiative to pursue other opportunities and spend more time with my 7 month old son. I am currently working with the USGBC as a subject matter expert to incorporate portions of the Sustainable Sites Initiative into LEED. I am happy to report that the SS TAG is seriously looking at several Sites pre-requisites and credits and we will hopefully see components of the Initiative in new or revised LEED credits released for public comment this summer. It will be very important for practitioners testing these practices to participate in the comment period and provide real world/project based feedback. I look forward to learning more from you!
