How to Achieve a Sustainable Lifestyle
An Article Written in the Master Builders’ Association Magazine
Being responsible stewards of our land and natural resources should be the primary goal of every land developer.” – Merle Ash
I am passionate about designing and advocating for livable, green communities using the advancements in knowledge, technology and the principles of sustainability when it comes to planning and engineering.
I am proud to promote achieving this sustainability by using “LID”, or Low Impact Development. “LID”( a term used by the United States and Canada) is, basically put, a way of land planning, engineering and development that focuses on emphasizing conservation as it applies to the management of stormwater and the protection of our water quality.
I am honored and humbled to have The Master Builders’ Association write an article about the work I so strongly believe in and work towards…the more we understand, the more committed to creating a sustainable lifestyle we become and the closer we are to realizing it.
