Doug Farr, founding principal of Farr Associates and founding chair of the USGBC LEED-ND committee, will present a detailed examination of one local project and the rating system which it is registered under, LEED for Neighborhood Development (LEED-ND). The project is the East Saint Louis Housing Authority’s Church Lane Gardens Master Plan.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES
