The public comment period for the LEED for Retail – New Construction rating system has been extended, the U.S. Green Building Council has announced.

USGBC invites the public to comment on the draft LEED for Retail – New Construction rating system, which was developed to meet the unique needs of retail design and construction projects, including lighting, sites, security, energy and water concerns.

Any member of the public can comment on the draft rating system. The public comment period opened on Monday, May 14, 2007 and is now extended through Thursday, July 5, 2007 midnight Pacific Standard Time.

USGBC says it will respond to all comments, and post the comments and responses (without commenter names or organizations) to the USGBC Web site.  If changes are made to the draft, a second public comment period will be conducted on those changes.  The resulting draft will then be sent to the USGBC membership for balloting.

Visit the public comment page for more information and to participate.
