Maplewood, N.J., is a town with a plan: reduce its greenhouse gas emissions 20% by 2015. Starting in 2006, it redesigned its recycling program, converted its non-specialty motor vehicle fleet to hybrids, and completed an energy audit of its municipal buildings among other initiatives. The township wanted its new Police and Court Building to reflect its green values, so it decided to pursue LEED certification.
