City of Bloomington Announces Grand Opening of EverGreen Village


The City of Bloomington will host a grand opening celebration for EverGreen Village, a subdivision of LEED-certified affordable "green" housing units developed by the City's Housing and Neighborhood Development Department (HAND) that features a sustainable storm water system and pervious pavement sidepath.

The ceremony will take place on Wednesday, April 22, from 1:00 - 3:00 p.m. at 2121 Susie Street, near the intersection of Rockport Road and Countryview Lane.

Speakers from the City and the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) will be on hand to discuss the project's significance, both as an effort to create affordable housing and as a sustainable initiative.

At the grand opening event, the public will be invited to walk the sidepaths, cross a bridge constructed with recycled milk jugs and tour a home furnished with reused items from Habitat for Humanity's ReStore.
