Green Mission Statement
Our mission is to reduce resource consumption and increase environmental performance by using affordable, quality energy efficient building products with proven durability to improve the indoor environmental quality in our homes and to provide a healthy, sustainable lifestyle with lower operating costs for our residents. It is our mission to minimize the use of water and energy through the installation of these products. In addition, it is our goal to maintain these systems in top working order to maximize efficiency.

Please refer to your Tenant Manual (link to) for more information, including:

  • Guidance on maintaining and operating your home
  • Tips and suggestions for creating and maintaining a healthy and green lifestyle
  • Building policies and procedures
  • Maps of the building and nearby amenities, including public transportation access and bike trails
  • And much more!

(Please refer to your lease agreement for specifics on building policies and regulations.)

This is a National Green Building Standards (NGBS) Building. NGBS is the first national green building program developed for affordable housing. The program was developed by Enterprise Community Partners to provide a clear, cost effective framework for all kinds of affordable housing: new construction and rehabs in multifamily, as well as single family buildings.

Because there are many ways to build green, National Green Building Standards (NGBS) provides developers with guidelines to ensure the homes built are healthy and sustainable for their tenants. To achieve NGBS Certification, a project needs to earn points in eight categories:

  1. Integrative Design
  2. Location and Neighborhood Fabric
  3. Site Improvements
  4. Water Conservation
  5. Energy Efficiency
  6. Materials Beneficial to the Environment
  7. Healthy Living Environment
  8. Operations and Maintenance
