Vibrant, Alive, Affordable + Living Lightly Locally= Sustainable Neighborhoods

5 Planets! How are we, the US of A, going to be a serious leader if our lifestyle requires 5 planets of resources??

How are we going to look our grandchildren in the eye and say with pride “All this is yours!”??

The good news is we are innovative. So, my fellow Americans, let’s roll up our sleeves and seize the opportunity. What else are we gonna do?!  

If you’re in Santa Fe, come to the Tuesday night “Design Lab for Sustainable Neighborhoods” Meetup group

Go to ⇒  www.SustainableSantaFe.com/survey-01  take the short survey !

Mixed-use, mixed-income sustainable neighborhood infill developments of 2 or so acres, located in rural, urban, or suburban settings, are the winning ticket.

Here is a drawing of one possibility!

There is a small problem…it’s gonna take collaboration. and change. Hold on! before you start moaning and wailing…oh ok, go ahead and moan and wail…gnash your teeth, pull out your hair, go get really drunk, even if it’s 11 o’clock in the morning.  Show this to your boss, (s)he’ll join you…

Better?? Good! remember, you can always go back to the bottle, but consider this again…We Are Innovative.  Not just Americans (though it seems we have a certain predisposition), but everybody, all 7+ billion of us.

I don’t know what will empower us to move beyond our inefficient, overly consumptive suburban sprawl, but I’m extending the opportunity to you.

With approx. 40 residential units of varying sizes on the upper floor, and mixed-use commercial and shared common facilities on the ground floor, we just need 80 or so people who want to move in. June 20th is our next designing Sustainable Neighborhoods Workshop.

Go to ⇒  www.SustainableSantaFe.com/survey-01  take the short survey !

fill out the survey, and check the box letting us know you’ll be attending. Together, we can make Sustainable Neighborhoods real!
