Sustainable Sites Initiative makes the NY Times

Today's NY Times included a fairly lengthy piece on the Sustainable Sites Initiative. Their article looks more at the USBG's participation. It includes a quote from Ray Mims:
“We want to make sure that you look at the soil, the vegetation, the hydrology, so that you are improving — or certainly not harming — the natural ecosystem,” he said.
That would be an interesting contrast with the LEED standards which seem designed to promote building by trying to be less bad.

Your last chance to comments on the report is January 20th!
