Submission of LEED 2009 Project Checklist
The City Council of the City of Fairfax approved a resolution recommending the incorporation of green building practices and climate protection strategies for development and operations in the City of Fairfax. The city is encouraging developers to meet the requirements for a LEED certified building. One of the conditions of the resolution requires developers to submit a LEED checklist with their site plan application. Since many aspects of the building design may not be known at the time of initial site plan submission, applicants should submit a revised checklist with final submission.
The LEED 2009 checklist contains seven categories of items related to sustainable sites, water efficiency, energy and atmosphere, materials and resources, indoor environmental quality, innovation and design and regional priority. The checklist should be submitted with a brief statement as to how each credit point will be achieved. The checklist and guidance document for LEED 2009 for New Construction and Major Renovations can be found at U.S. Green Building Council's website.
For any questions related to the LEED checklist, you can contact Stefanie Kupka at 703.385.7816 or email.
