Green buildings resemble those with "green roofs," roofs with grass on them.
By building homes in the townhouse style so they share walls, it conserves energy. The homes on either side act as a sort of insulation. The homes will be built to take in the most sunlight and utilize passive solar energy. The homes will also utilize grass rooftops that insulate from above, as well as having solar panels installed on the roof.
We will have fresh produce markets in some alleyways that serve on the dot and also support local markets in the areas. Moving to the top, our roofs will have raised beds used for gardening, most commonly above apartment buildings. There will also be community gardens that serve everyone.
Finally! I can charge my car near work!
New EV Charging Stations coming soon!
Green roofs provide stormwater management, regulated building temperatures, and an increased urban wildlife habitat. Along with nature parks, there will be squirrel and bird feeders to attract urban wildlife.
Water for the town will be sourced from nearby freshwater rivers and lakes. There will be limits placed on water use and regulations on how much can be extracted. For users of city water, it is on a pay-per-use water system.
Our city will have major bus transportation, along with designated bike lanes and bike-only communities, on top of EV stations to charge any electric vehicles, all in aim to reduce vehicle emissions by limiting car use.

The city will have an extensive recycling program-similar to that of Germany that makes recycling widely accessible. It uses easily color coded bins depending on type of waste. Recycling and composting will be a regular habit within schools. The city will even have compost bins and the compost collected will be used for fertilizer in the city's many gardens.
