NorthWest Crossing was named as one of the nation’s Top 10 Green Neighborhoods in Natural Home Magazine. The article, which appeared in the magazine’s May/June issue, covered planned communities that demonstrated a commitment to responsible construction and the promotion of sustainable living.
NorthWest Crossing was chosen because of a number of its specific practices, including the green building certification requirement for residential homes, the retention of mature Ponderosa pines in the master plan and mandatory stormwater retention and construction waste recycling. A photo of NorthWest Crossing’s Lewis and Clark Park was also featured in the article.
“Clearly, one of our main goals with NorthWest Crossing has been sustainability and environmentally conscious development,” said David Ford, general manager for the Bend, Oregon neighborhood. “For a leading publication like Natural Home to choose us as one of the Top 10 in America is a great confirmation that we are succeeding in our ‘green’ goals for this community.”
Natural Home is considered the authority on green lifestyle and design. With an up-to-date outlook on current trends in sustainable building and wholesome living, this publication provides information to eco-conscious homeowners for living in nurturing, healthy homes.
