The EarthCraft Communities program addresses low-impact development, site selection, land disturbance, water quality and quantity management, energy, transportation infrastructure, community design, green space preservation and more. In addition, all buildings within an EarthCraft Community must be certified through the EarthCraft House, Multifamily or Light Commercial programs.
EarthCraft Communities program administrators perform regular site visits, facilitate conceptual design charrettes and provide each project green building trainings for residents, property managers, builders and/or realtors.
To officially begin an EarthCraft Communities project, each project must be registered prior to the Design Review Submittal. The registration fee is non-refundable and does not guarantee the project will be certified. The totals below include EarthCraft administration fees, and do not include any additional fees as outlined by EarthCraft Technical Advisors or any additional technical assistance.
