A Shining Example of Sustainable Development

Hello Again...

One of the way I will be helping to spread the word is to offer sustainable developoment examples that show us not only what is possible but what is actually being done. One of those is Oshara Village in Santa Fe, New Mexico, which is now under construction. This unique New Urbanist development, which is the first of its kind in the United States to combine New Urbanism and Sustainability, will allow residents to drastically reduce their use of non-renewable resources and overall energy consumption.

Below is a 10 minute video describing The Oshara Model and how we can build and rebuild our cities and towns to be more sustainable while still being wonderful places to live. Enjoy!

Let me know what you think of this video and I am happy to pass along a copy if you have a group or an online place to show it.

Enjoy your day!
