Sustainable Building Practices

The community is invited to attend a program on the topic of sustainable building practices, sponsosred by the Board of Trustees of the Mancos Public Library. The program will be held at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, January 18, in the visitor center.

Michelle Reott, principal, project manager and systainability consultant for Earthly Ideas, LLC. will talk about the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Green Building Rating System. LEED evaluates environmental performance from a "whole building" perspective over a building's entire life cycle, providing a definitive standard for what constitutes a "green" building.

The information on LEED practices will be utilized during the planning and building of the new library. Following the presentation, Michelle will be available to answer questions and refreshments will be served.
