Sustainable Sites Initiative Pilot Project Submissions Due February 18

The deadline to submit a pilot project for the Sustainable Sites Initiative™ (SITES™) is Thursday, February 18, 2010, midnight PST. The deadline has been extended due to the recent, heavy snow storms along the East Coast. The pilot projects will test the SITES rating system and serve as the first certified sustainable landscapes in the country.

The initiative invites any type of project to participate in the pilot program. Projects in all phases will be considered, as long as the project size is at least 2,000 square feet. If a project is accepted into the pilot program, fees for participating will vary between $500 and $5,000 depending on project size, which cover technical assistance from SITES staff over a two-year period.
