Is there payback in building green? Will green standards hurt development in the Valley? Green construction will accelerate in Silicon Valley as myths are debunked and as barriers to green building are lowered. Hear from experts how green development can succeed, and what challenges lie ahead.

* Linda LeZotte, Berliner Cohen, former City of San Jose councilmember
* David Edwards, founder, Earth Bound Homes

Plus speaker panel Q&A.

Target Audience: City planners, commercial developers, home builders, historic preservationists, and others involved in property development (such as bankers, builders, equipment vendors, tenants, buyers), and students making career choices.
