Beginning today, Nov. 8, USGBC will begin the first public comment period for the next update to the LEED rating system, with first public comment expected to run through the end of 2010. The proposed update is a general technical update to the rating system content. The proposed updates will undergo at least two public comment periods and a member ballot vote, per LEED development requirements.
The first public comment period is open to all interested USGBC stakeholders. USGBC will also host a number of webcasts for members regarding the technical changes proposed for the rating system, which will be advertised in the coming weeks. Additionally, Greenbuild 2010 will feature specialty updates regarding the development of the LEED rating system, featuring LEED staff and Technical Advisory Group members and chairs.
