LEED for Neighborhood Design (LEED-ND) is approved to become a permanent certification program.

The Congress for the New Urbanism, the Natural Resources Defense Council, Smart Growth America, and the US Green Building Council have voted to advance LEED-ND from its pilot stage to full-scale operation. It is the first of the Green Building Council's regular programs to draw from principles of New Urbanism.
