Green Communities

Green communities are complete, compact communities that encourage "mixed-use" development, energy efficiency, lighter infrastructure and alternative transportation to reduce GHG emissions and achieve environmental and social benefits.

Green Communities promote lighter infrastructure and energy efficient buildings that are easier on the environment and use alternative energy sources to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. They are communities that recognize the value of preserving and protecting wetlands and treed areas - and are resilient and meet citizens' essential needs.
