  • The rating system is divided into three categories: Smart Location & Linkage, Neighborhood Pattern & Design, and Green Infrastructure & Buildings. All three have prerequisites which are required of all projects and credits which reward performance. There also are ten additional points for Innovation and Design Process (exemplary performance and innovative performance) and Regional Priority Credits.
  • Various Stages for various purposes, pre-approval assistance, plan certification, project certificationRange from single mixed-use building to huge citiesPre-review: Letter Approved Plan: Certificate Completed Project
  • Started from Affordable Housing Grant ProgramBeing rolled out to all ND projects due to limited numberUpon registering a POC will be designated from the 5 ND staff Available for ongoing project assistanceQuarterly webcasts for all interested parties

  • FOR ALL PROJECTSThe following features are not considered wetlands, water bodies, or buffer land that must be protected:a. Previously developed land.b. Man-made water bodies (such as industrial mining pits, concrete-lined canals, or stormwater retentionponds) that lack natural edges and floors or native ecological communities in the water and along the edgec. Man-made linear wetlands that result from the interruption of natural drainages by existing rights-of-way.d. Wetlands that were created incidentally by human activity and have been rated “poor” for all measuredwetland functions. Wetland quality assessment must be performed by a qualified biologist using a methodthat is accepted by state or regional permitting agencies.
