It is the mission of Village Habitat Design to improve the quality
of communities and to protect the environment. We do this by providing
planning and design services for the development of sustainable
communities, and to assist with increasing the sustainability
of existing communities.
We believe sustainability
requires the following:
- Making sustainable
community work in the market place.
- Preserving land
by using off setting density.
- A full range of
housing choices from affordable single occupant homes and small
family homes, to luxury homes within a community.
- Improving the utilization
of resources within the community.
- Opportunities to
grow food locally.
- Building with materials
which are renewable, durable, and energy efficient.
it possible to live without relying on automobile travel as
a part of daily life. That is, to make the community walkable
and to include as many of the daily needs as possible within
the community, including places of work.
It is also part of
our mission to educate people about the economic, social, and
ecological costs of suburban sprawl development, and how those
costs are reduced in well planned, sustainable development.
Ultimately it is our
goal to improve how real estate is developed in this country.
