FBISD Will Issue ‘Green’ Bonds to Fund Donald Leonetti Elementary
Sienna Plantation’s newest elementary school, Donald Leonetti Elementary, will be one of the first in Texas to be funded by “green bonds” as part of an initiative that supports environmentally responsible construction.
According to an article published in the Houston Business Journal, the Fort Bend Independent School District will make history by issuing the bonds, which will finance the environmentally-sustainable construction of three new elementary schools, including Leonetti.
The schools will be designed to LEED standards and will include green features such as building materials with higher levels of recycled content, energy efficient HVAC equipment, and heat-reducing features such as light-colored building materials and green space.
