Dallas to Get First Ever City Block Designed for Complete Sustainability

June 7, 2009 at 11:50 am Leave a comment

Here is a great topic we found while reading about: the Re:Vision Dallas project.  You can check out the site dedicated to the entire project here: www.revision-dallas.com.  This is an amazing contest is about “…a diverse group of people focused on changing the urban landscape by re-imagining all the components that make up a city block. From energy to transportation to commerce to community, we believe that by finding innovative, healthy and sustainable ideas to help revitalize one urban block, we can create a blueprint for better cities everywhere.”

ecosumo is, to say the least, in love with the project.  This is not just a piecemeal city project to manage certain aspects of urban development to fall in line with eco-consciousness and sustainability.  Re:Vision is the complete package considering building materials, power generation, power supply, living environment, food supply, and so much more, all very necessary components for human living environments in a post-peak oil world.  Check ou the Re:Vision project to learn ideas about how your city can adopt such measures – having this project as a model will be tremendous for influencing future projects.
