Sorry about the last minute nature of this--just saw it this morning on the Alliance for Metropolitan Stability website:
Urban Land Institute: From Bean Town to Green Town
In December of 2006, the city of Boston emerged as a national leader in green buildings and the first major U.S. city to require private developers to build green. Boston?s Green Building Zoning regulations are transforming practice on a large scale; annually over 6 million square feet of new development must meet the U.S. Green Building Council LEED Rating System requirements. From being the largest municipal purchaser of green power in New England to clean vehicle and fuel policies for municipal vehicles to green growth districts, Boston?s comprehensive approach to sustainability has produced impressive outcomes ingraining green buildings into the development DNA of the city.
Please join John Dalzell, leader of sustainability and green building efforts for the Boston Redevelopment Authority, at the Urban Land Institute's From Bean Town to Green Town event. Additionally, a panel of local experts will share exciting new initiatives that are taking shape in area cities.
