Sustainable Sites (Continued)
Installation/Base Redevelopment (1)
Channel development to installation/base cantonment areas with existing infrastructure, protecting greenfields
and preserving habitat and natural resources.
Increase localized density to conform to existing or desired density goals by utilizing sites that are located
within existing cantonment areas of high development density.
Select sites close to existing roads and utilities or use an existing structure to minimize the need for new
During the site selection process give preference to previously developed sites with installation/base cantonment
redevelopment potential such as facility reduction program cleared sites.
Rehabilitate damaged sites where development is complicated by real or perceived environmental contamination,
reducing pressure on undeveloped land.
Develop on a site classified as a brownfield and provide remediation as required by EPA's Brownfield
Redevelopment program requirements OR Develop a brownfield site (a site that has been contaminated by
Screen potential damaged sites for these criteria prior to selection for rehabilitation.
Utilize EPA OSWER Directive 9610.17 and ASTM Standard Practice E1739 for site remediation where required.
Alternative Transportation (1)
Reduce pollution and land development impacts from automobile use.
Locate building within mile of installation/base transit systems.
Provide suitable means for securing bicycles, with convenient changing/shower facilities for use by cyclists,
for 5% or more of building occupants.
Locate building within 2 miles of alternative-fuel refueling station(s).
Size parking capacity not to exceed minimum installation/base cantonment requirements AND provide
preferred parking for carpools or van pools capable of serving 5% of the building occupants, OR, add no new
parking for rehabilitation projects AND provide preferred parking for carpools or van pools capable of serving
5% of the building occupants.
Select sites near public installation/base transit served by safe, convenient pedestrian pathways.
