The Salem Statesman Journal devoted their recent “Inside Business” section to articles about greening businesses. Prominent was this piece written by Pringle Creek Masterplan Coordinator Tony Nielsen. In the article Tony praised a number of the local businesses that have been part of the project. Tony mentioned DeSantis Landscaping (“a leader in green landscapes and maintenance services”), Evolution Paving Resources (“a leader in pervious concrete applications”), O’Neil Pine Co. and Withers Lumber (“partnering to ensure a steady flow of Forest Stewardship Council-certified lumber”), North Santiam Paving (which “demonstrated ingenuity when it came up with the idea of reusing some concrete beams to build a small bridge over the creek”), and builders Blake and Larry Bilyeu and Spectra Construction (who “have brought knowledge and passion for green building techniques to the homes at Pringle Creek”).
