The U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) recently announced that it will delay the ballot on LEED 2012 until June 1, 2013. Given the date change, the organization also announced that LEED 2012 is being renamed LEED v4.

This action is no doubt in part due to concerns expressed by the roofing industry and other stakeholders. Besides changing the date, the USGBC will continue ask for input on LEED v4. A fifth public comment period will open on Oct. 2, 2012, and run through Dec. 10, 2012. I’m sure the roofing industry will make their voices heard.
