EverGreen Village

EverGreen Village is a 12 unit subdivision being developed by the City of Bloomington's Housing and Neighborhood Development Department. It is a green-built, Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Pilot project. The Engineering firm of Bledsoe Riggert & Guerrettaz developed the site plan for EverGreen Village which has a state-of-the-art, environmentally-friendly storm water design system that includes a restored creek and naturalized rain gardens. A walking path constructed of pervious pavement has been installed, and runs along the creek between Rockport Road to Thompson Park Drive. The homes are being built using LEED standards and requirements to insure energy efficiency. Duke Energy (formerly Cinergy) has generously donated photovoltaic panels for solar energy production. This solar energy production, along with the energy efficiency design standards, make these homes very cost-effective to operate.
