GreenTRIP Session Teaches the Importance of Place and Transit
SEPTEMBER 28, 2011 - 2:00 PM - 3:30 PM ET
Transportation has become a key ingredient to building sustainable and socially equitable communities. Community development entities have embraced this notion and green building certification is now going beyond performance to include emphasis on “place.”
GreenTRIP, the new certification program launched by a Bay Area company called TransForm Area, is encouraging the development of communities that use fewer resources, provide healthier environments, reduce traffic and provide residents with sustainable and affordable living options. GreenTRIP pilot projects in the Bay Area have created more affordable options for families and are resulting in less driving miles and greater use of transit.
This webinar -- called Introducing GreenTRIP: Building Certification for Truly Transit-Oriented, Green Development – will take a close look at this program and explore the benefits. Learn moreURL: http://lisc.org/content/calendar/detail/19647/
