Boston's Parks and Recreation Department has released a new set of "sustainable" design guidelines. Unfortunately, the entire report is not on-line, but you can view the Conclusions and Recommendations. I thought it was interesting that the Dep't used "sustainable," instead of "green." Although it's unclear from the documents how they are going beyond environmental protection, the release states:
"The difference between a “green” project and a “sustainable” project is that a “green” project focuses solely on environmental stewardship such as reducing waste, minimizing carbon and water footprints, preventing pollution and conserving natural resources while a “sustainable” project moves beyond these and not only includes green components, but also integrates economic growth and social responsibility."
