The U.S. Green Building Council's (USGBC) Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) is a voluntary green building tool that addresses the entire building lifecycle, recognizing best-in-class building strategies. Currently Balboa Park is home to three LEED certified Buildings. With help from our local chapter of the USGBC and community volunteers, two Balboa Park Cultural Partnership members are looking to join the LEED team in Balboa Park this year! This will bring us to the half-way mark of our Centennial goal of 10 LEED certified buildings in the Park!
