Porter Memorial Branch Library Opens This Week

The Porter Memorial Branch Library in Newton County is scheduled to open this week (weather pending).  This 18,000 square foot LEED building is the first LEED project for Newton County and features sustainable site elements such as drought tolerant plants, infiltration based stormwater management strategies and a non-potable water irrigation cistern.  Breedlove Land Planning has provided site design services for many other  local and County ‘first’ LEED projects including Decatur Fire Station #2 and the Bartow County Clarence Brown Conference Center.
