37 AIA Treasure Coast © 2007 AIA Treasure Coast ATLANTICA 2008 Realizations – Physical Growth Physical Growth Based on Economics Who Benefits from Growth? Who Doesnt Benefit? Does the total community benefit? Does the tax payer benefit? Are Community Funded Support Facilities Required? Does growth require additional schools and libraries? Does growth require addition police and fire protection facilities, equipment, and personnel? Does growth require additional water or sewer utilities? Does growth require additional roads? What transportation systems or on-site facilities are proposed to encourage people not to use their automobiles? Walking / Bike Trails? Transportation Center? Shuttles? Car pooling? Mixed Use Facilities on Site (Grocery, Bank, Coffee Shop, Restaurant)?

39 AIA Treasure Coast © 2007 AIA Treasure Coast ATLANTICA 2008 Realizations – Physical Growth Urban Sprawl Urban Sprawl is the indiscriminate spreading out of a city and its suburbs over rural land at the fringe of an urban area. Residents of sprawling neighborhoods tend to live in single-family homes and commute by automobile to work. Characteristics of Urban Sprawl include lack of transportation options, lack of pedestrian friendly neighborhoods and increased traffic on arterial roads. Urban sprawl creates health and environmental issues. Residents of sprawling neighborhoods emit more pollution per person and suffer more traffic fatalities. Widening of Existing Roads beyond two lanes in each direction encourages additional sprawl.

LEED promotes a whole-building approach to sustainability by recognizing performance in five key areas of human and environmental health: sustainable site development, water savings, energy efficiency, materials selection, and indoor environmental quality. LEED provides a roadmap for measuring and documenting success for every building type and phase of a building lifecycle. LEED for New Construction has 69 achievable points. Certified Level – 26 to 32 points Silver Level – 33 to 38 points Gold Level – 39 to 51 points Platinum Level – 52 to 69 points
