Green Development

OUR MISSION is to become a self-sustaining community
in harmony with nature and people.

Sustainability is at the core of our village philosophy. We strive to use resources to meet present needs without diminishing future generation’s ability to meet their needs. The foundation of sustainability is a diverse, thriving community that is ecologically sensitive, economically strong, and socially and culturally integrated.

Communities like this do not just happen. They are created. Step by step out of vision, hard work and commitment to active social development of the community.

My commitment to Sustainable Community:

  • Personal Sustainability: Commitment starts with me, the resident developer. It starts with the choices I make in my personal life, like installing a rain water collection system on my home that makes us water self-sustaining even in the midst of the worst drought in our recorded history. I offer financial incentives and resources for residents to do the same.
  • Environmental Contribution
    • Preserving Nature: 500 acres or 2/3 of the Village property is a dedicated nature preserve, a green belt that is and always will be in its natural, beautiful and bio-diverse state.
    • Reclaiming Nature: Approximately 85 acres that was clear-cut some 6-7 years ago has been reclaimed for its highest use. What was a mess of briars and discarded treetops is now a vast meadow with sweeping canyon views where solar, geothermal and wind power can be effectively deployed.
    • Green Financial Incentive: Offering a 10% rebate (up to $10,000) on land purchases for qualified green initiatives. (Renewable power, Water)
    • Green How-To: Continuously working to build and improve a network of qualified environmental experts, contractors and suppliers.
  • “Thriving Human” Community Development
    • Building Amenities that bring people together
      • Community Organic Garden.
      • Village Commons: entertainment and outdoor activities venues.
      • Trails that connect neighbors and nature
    • Providing continuous leadership so amenities are not idle, but actually used to bring people together
      • Organic Coach for Community Garden
      • Theater, Movies, Music, Cultural, Sports, Education
