Walker Wells and Hagu Solomon from our Green Urbanism Planning (GUP) department were in Lafayette, IN, this week for our neighborhood assessment. The team is using the LEED for Neighborhood Development (LEED-ND) standard to help Lafayette make environmentally sound improvements for the community.

Lafayette is one of eight communities we selected to receive free consultations with a Building Blocks for Sustainable Communities Program grant from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). We have already made visits to Dearborn, MI, and Lakewood, CO.
