Justin Timberlake helps LEED the way!

I was checking all of my favorite Justin Timberlake fan blogs and came upon this doozy. Good on him.

Click on this posts title to see the JT fan blog, from the site:
"Last year, Justin and his family saved the Big Creek Golf Course when it was put up for auction. Now, they have big, environment-friendly plans for the golf course. Design plans for the property, which the city-county Land Use Control Board will vote on Thursday, confirm what the new ownership group has maintained all along - that something big is in the works there.

One example: The group wants to remove an existing clubhouse, maintenance building, swimming pool, tennis courts and parking lot from the sprawling property. In their place would be an upscale clubhouse, cart cottage and maintenance facility built to the highest of the U.S. Green Building Council's Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design standards (LEED).

The highest LEED certification carries the "platinum" designation. And that addition to the Millington-area property will create the first such platinum-certified LEED building and golf course in Tennessee, according to a letter of intent sent to local planners in February by the project's engineer. "Also anticipated is a practice driving range, three-hole practice links course, a renewable energy field and a walking trail with educational placards and seating for the public to learn about responsible energy and natural resource usage," wrote Eric Criswell, of the engineering firm Davis Patrikios Criswell Inc."
