Neighborhood-scale sustainability is an essential bridge between individual action and community-wide initiative. Existing neighborhoods possess significant capacity for sustainable regeneration, and planned neighborhoods can be designed from the outset to optimize triple bottom lines. To help capture these benefits, several rating and assessment tools have emerged for practitioner and public use as neighborhood collaboration platforms, indicator frameworks, and sustainability accelerators. This session will present four major neighborhood-scale appraisal tools in the U.S., including LEED for Neighborhood Development, Enterprise Green Communities, Living Community Challenge, and EcoDistricts Protocol. Each tool will be explored by scope, typical applications, user skills, costs, and appraisal output. The session will give participants an understanding of neighborhood sustainability appraisal techniques, a recognition of appraisal tool choices and capabilities, and the knowledge to select best-¬fit tools for their neighborhoods.
