This course is the second in a four-part series on how urban sustainability appraisal tools can serve as collaboration platforms and sustainability accelerators for communities. Assessment and rating tools to be covered in this course include STAR Community, APA Sustaining Places, 2030 Districts, and EcoDistricts Protocol. Each of these will be examined in terms of topical scope and physical scale of appraisal, appraisal procedures and criteria, cost to use, available user support, tool maturity and market impact, and overall usefulness. At the conclusion of this course, you will be familiar with these characteristics as they relate to community-scale and existing neighborhood tool options.
This course is approved for 1.75 AICP CM credits.
