MARQUETTE - The first sign that the U.S. Coast Guard Station in Marquette isn't your typical building is a sign stating: "Reserved Parking Hybrid Only."

The station, which was dedicated in August, is on its way to certification in Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, a rating system put out by the U.S. Green Building Council.

"I can tell you from this project and other projects that this is a priority for (the Coast Guard)," said MK1 Rich Dailey of the Marquette station.

The LEED system can be used on any type of building, whether residential or commercial, and encourages sustainability throughout the building process.
