In 2018, STAR Communities merged with the U.S. Green Building Council. As one LEED for Cities & Communities team, staff and partners are now in the process of developing a new, expanded LEED for Cities & Communities program that integrates the STAR Community Rating System with the LEED for Cities pilot. The intention is to create a globally applicable certification program with tools and resources that meet local needs. This new program is anticipated to launch in early 2019.
Existing Full Access STAR subscribers are now USGBC Silver members with associated benefits. They also have access to the Arc technology platform for tracking and reporting progress. Please reach out to your previous STAR coordinator if you have questions about your subscription status. Our team is here to ensure a smooth transition and continued value to members of our network.
