LEED for Cities
In September 2019 the City of Atlantic Beach was the first town in Florida to earn the designation of LEED Silver Community. In November 2022, the City received LEED for Cities Gold Certification. As a LEED Community, the City tracks its energy, water, waste, transportation, education, health, safety and prosperity.
The Atlantic Beach City Commission decided in January 2018 to pursue LEED for Cities certification. This endeavor specifically aligns with the City Commission’s Environmental Stewardship priority.
LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) for Cities is a pilot program of the U.S. Green Building Council which has a vision that buildings and communities will regenerate and sustain the health and vitality of all life in a generation.
As a LEED for Cities program participant, the City of Atlantic Beach has set quality-of-life goals and implement strategies and plans to maintain and support these goals. The city measures and tracks progress toward its goals.
The efforts of the City of Atlantic Beach to become LEED certified were spearheaded by the Environmental Stewardship Committee and Planning/Community Development Department.
