Target: Curt Johansen, Project Developer and Nicole Zieba, City Manager
Goal: Support efforts to build a critically needed eco-friendly community in central California.
An eco-friendly community is being planned for Central Valley in California. The community will feature numerous environmentally conscious aspects, such as solar panels and drought-resistant yards.
The critical condition of California’s land due to the drought influenced the architect of this innovative community to help solve the drought problem through creative architecture. Commend the leaders of this innovative project in not only helping to combat the drought problem in California through their environmentally conscious community project, but also for being a good environmental model for others.
This eco-friendly community, which is called Kings River Village, will be one of the first in Central Valley and is paving the way for more future projects of this nature. As part of the planning, this community denied the construction of a Wal-Mart building in town. The homes, which will be smaller than average, will be built close together with a shared green space. The town will run on solar power, have drought-resistant yards, and have a system for treating and recycling waste water in the city to help restore the aquifer underneath the city.
By signing the petition below, you are supporting the Kings River Village community initiative and encouraging other developers in the area to consider implementing more sustainable communities. More innovative projects such as Kings River Village must be generated in the coming times to lead the way to more sustainable living in drought areas such as in California.
Dear Curt Johansen and Nicole Zieba,
I recently read about the eco-friendly community project, Kings River Village, that you are planning to build in Reedley, California. Your desire to help solve the drought problem in California with your innovative project is quite admirable. The features of solar-power energy, drought-resistant yards, and recycled waste water are essential innovations for the drought-ridden area and will no doubt help conserve energy and water in the area immensely.
Thank you for designing and deciding to undertake this project. This project will no doubt serve as great inspiration for others to also combat the severe drought problems in the area, which will only further assist in the overall initiative of sustainable communities in drought areas. I am looking forward to reading about the positive impacts that Kings River Village will have in California.
