In 2006, the Suffolk County Legislature enacted Resolution No. 126-2006, creating the Leadership in Energy and Environment Design (LEED) Program for county construction projects. The program requirements were revised in 2008 (Resolution No. 551-2008), and again in 2011 (Resolution No. 458-2011). The program requires the County Department of Public Works to apply the LEED Building Rating System 2.2 principles be used for new construction projects or renovation projects with a cost of $1,000,000 or more, and for the planning of new construction and renovation projects "built to suit" for long term lease by the County.
