The site must be certified to achieve this credit. However, LEED v4 ND Plan is an acceptable certification for achieving this credit. The LEED for Neighborhood Development Pilot and LEED 2009 ND Stage 2 and Stage 3 certifications are also acceptable. Note that the LEED v4 ND Plan certification is available to neighborhood-scale projects that are currently in any phase of planning and design, and up to 75% constructed.
Does the LEED-ND site have to be certified, or can it be in the process of certification?
