In reading the wording for this credit under 2009 NC, it mentions for all cases that "projects in urban areas that earn SS Credit 2: Development Density and Community Connectivity, pedestrian-oriented hardscape areas can contribute to credit compliance. For such projects, a minimum of 25% of the open space counted must be vegetated." My question is do these hardscape and vegetated areas have to be located on the project site, or could you count adjacent pedestrial plazas and parks that are not part of the LEED project boundry--but that are within the Community Connectivity 1/2 mile radius boundry?
