The Ecological Planning and Design Directory
"This site is a repository of tools and techniques for achieving sustainable development in your community, whether you act as a decision maker on behalf of local government or for commercial development. Created by the Northeastern Illinois Planning Commission (NIPC) with funding from Chicago Wilderness, the Ecological Planning and Design Directory demonstrates how interests of the public and private sectors can intersect, with opportunities for mutual benefit.
