Plan Approved: Greener Neighborhood for Watts

bl_gup_watts_leedndWe celebrated a big victory for green neighborhood development this week, when the LA Planning Commission approved one of the largest public housing redevelopment Specific Plans for the Watts neighborhood called Jordan Downs. For the past three years, we have worked to ensure that the Specific Plan for Jordan Downs incorporated many of the LEED for Neighborhood Development (LEED-ND) prerequisites and credits that would establish the creation of a sustainable neighborhood. Next up: our Green Urbanism team will work with the Housing Authority and the developer on the LEED-ND certification as the plan is readied for approval by the Planning and Land Use Management and City Council.
