Green Living In The Mile High City

1818 words - 7 pages

EEco, short for environmentally efficient, contemporary oasis, is the ideal in green living spaces in Mile High City. The EEco concept was developed after the Tornado of 2009. City planners wanted homes for citizens that had tornado safety features, but was also eco-friendly with a soft carbon footprint. Originally, the land the EEco’s were built on was mixed-use including commercial, industrial, and residential. To support sustainable land practices, the city agreed to rebuild using the same concept. The EEco I & II are located downtown and are perfect for urban lifestyles because they house large numbers of residents in the heart of MHC, Colorado, while including services such as medical clinics, gyms, shops, restaurants, and a public transportation hub.
Mile High City’s EEco I & II are not just environmentally friendly, but are much more pleasurable to live in than a regular home. Architectural Engineers designed these homes to have enough space for its target number of occupants to live comfortably, and have enough fully equipped bathrooms, kitchens, and living areas. The carpets, made from recyclables, have that soft, comfortable feeling, and cork flooring that is spongy and therapeutic to walk on. Mechanical and electrical engineers designed the futuristic technologies of communication devices, netbooks, and appliances that make life simpler and easier as well as being Five Star energy rated. People with disabilities especially benefit from living in these homes, because the EEcos are communities that replace group homes. So, disabled residents can get the help they need easily, with staff close by and in-building clinics, as well as be socially active with others in the community. Elderly and disabled residents have housing priority on the ground floor for safety reasons, and older citizen get the special care and social life they would in a retirement home, with better amenities. EEco’s are customizable to the wishes of its occupants so they are suitable for all types of people. For example, because the homes are sold in units, families have the option of purchasing more units, elderly and disabled can live on the ground floor, and college students or young single persons could simply purchase one unit.
Prospective residents of EEco don’t have to be millionaires to live in this urban oasis. For example, the Smiths, an average family living on an average salary, lost everything in the tornado. They want to live in the center of MHC because mom and dad work there, Jill and Robert go to school there, and they all enjoy the activities available in downtown MHC. Unable to purchase a new home, the Smiths, looking for a new start, can be a part of the EEco community. Mr. Smith, an electrical engineer, can agree to monitor the solar energy panels used to power the EEcos. Mrs. Smith, a bioengineer, loves to garden. She can agree to supervise the agricultural enterprises of EEco. By selling excess energy back to local power companies, the...
