Pringle Creek Community is on Natural Home Magazine’s list of the top ten green housing developments. It’s a ten-way tie; the developments are listed alphabetically by city. In addition to recognizing the potential for carbon-neutral living and net-zero energy homes at Pringle Creek (all Pringle Creek homes are expected to achieve LEED-Silver, Gold or Platinum), the magazine takes note of these great features:

  • Geothermal heating in 70 homes, commercial and mixed-use buildings
  • Forest Stewardship Council-certified lumber
  • Green restoration of historic buildings and greenhouses
  • Porous asphalt street system for managing rainwater
  • Onsite biodiesel co-op; community flex car (car-sharing)
  • Creek and wetlands restoration; tree preservation plan
  • Community garden and orchards

Three other developments from the Pacific Northwest made the list: Issaquah Highlands and High Point from the Seattle area, and Helensview from the Portland area.

Thank you Statesman Journal for reporting on Pringle Creek making this list.
