The U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) is seeking public comment on the draft LEED for Retail–New Construction rating system, which has recently completed pilot testing.

LEED for Retail 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 will be open for 45 days, continuing through June 27 midnight Pacific Standard Time. Visit the USGBC Web site for more information and to participate.

USGBC 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.
