White-Haired Baby Boomer Reveals 6 Benefits of Green Development

White-Haired Baby Boomer Reveals 6 Benefits of Green Development
Asheville Real Estate Journal

Green Development Plans from a White-Haired Boomer:  Just because you are a “white-haired White-Haired Baby Boomer's Dream-a Green DevelopmentBaby Boomer” doesn’t mean you can expect to sit on the sidelines- at least not if you want to see your Green Development dream come true. This white-haired diva is investigating the possibility of creating an urban paradise. Of course, there is a good-deal of learning to do if you are new to development.

Our boomer colleague has attended any number of workshops in her area of interest. These have demonstrated the basics of conservation land planning and have examined local ordinances pertaining to conservation planning. 

 She has also made it a priority to visit property sites where homes are planned to be built, as you can see by the photos here. “ There’s nothing like conducting a hands-on exercise to design the site using conservation principles,” she tells us.

Countering a misconception among developers about the financial viability of going green in real estate development, this white-haired powerhouse is excited about her research from Smart Communities and is looking forward to living in a well-executed green development that will perform well financially.

Oh man, John did what I was going to do - post all those wonderfule benefits of being green. There seems to be this idea that we shouldn't do it if it doesn't increase our house value or save electricity. The truth is, everyone has their own WHY and that is all that really matters to each of us. Here you point out some very good reasons crossing several whys. Thanks for sharing.
