Description / Abstract:

A first-hand account of all aspects involved in creating a sustainable neighborhood development. This new GreenSource book offers a complete look at Civano, the nation's largest sustainable mixed-use community located in the southeast part of Tucson, Arizona. Civano comprises four neighborhoods with the capacity to house over 2,600 families. Inside the Civano Project covers the planning, funding, building, and management of this development which integrates residential communities with shopping, workplace, school, and civic facilities, as well as parks and natural open spaces. The book discusses the zoning and building code guidelines, sustainable building materials, energy standards, and water conservation technologies that make Civano ahead of its time.
