Los Alamos County officials have announced that the local Teen Center in downtown Los Alamos has received a “LEED Certified” designation for the remodeling of the community building space that took place in 2016.
LEED stands for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, and varying status levels can be achieved by applying for credits awarded for sustainable design through a points system designed by the US Green Building Council.
A short dedication ceremony for the plaque denoting its LEED Certified status will be unveiled near the entrance to the Teen Center at 4 p.m. Thursday, May 10 with brief remarks from those involved with the project and the Council.
Shortly after the plaque dedication, the Art in Public Places Board and Council will host the art dedication at 4:30 p.m. for the colorful benches installed in front of the Teen Center on 20th Street.
The public is welcome to attend both events.
