Here in the mountains, as you would expect,  land is steep -the terrain, rugged. And,  developers, many of whom also are Boomers,  know that it is mighty expensive and even imprudent to prepare such land for development. They note with interest the steep slope ordinances.  Neighbors, who watch carefully and voice opinions at city council meetings, also are taking action to protect farmlands and land containing rare, unique species and ecosystems.

Beautiful views belong to everyone. To that end, here in a the top(UN)  retirement location for baby boomers seeking creative ways to re-invent aging alternatives...

janeAnne, your message is a good one. I think it's interesting that many of the boomers are choosing green lifestyles. Makes me proud to be part of it...

Love the froggie photo too - it's fabulous. I have them in my flower pots and see them sitting out there on a blossom or a leaf all the time - it's fun to share the garden with their green little souls.

What a cool photo janeAnne...  I like your thinking and your right on target with the fact we should keep an eye and ear out to the baby boomers.  Times, lifestyles and homes are changing for many!
