Following the green, sustainably designed road to Greensburg, Kansas

2007 wasn?? a great year for residents of Greensburg, Kansas. In May, a tornado swept through the city and near enough flattened 90% of the town. But here?? a forward-thinking way to turn a horrible reality into a positive: Greensburg City Council has adopted a resolution specifying that all city buildings greater than 4,000 square feet must be certified LEED Platinum. That?? the highest possible rating in the US Green Building Council?? sustainable architecture program, and it?? a big deal. The planners aren?? looking to rebuild the past, but instead are striving to build a bright green future of which they can be rightly proud. Only six buildings in the entire state of Kansas have any kind of LEED certification right now, and this tiny rural community is the first city in the U.S. to pass such a resolution. Bravo.
