Green Cottages ribbon cutting

Mayor Frank Jackson and the homebuyer of the first EcoVillage Green Cottage will be special guests at the ribbon cutting for the first Green Cottage on Friday, April 24, at 4 p.m., at the house, 5810 Pear Ave., Cleveland.

The house will be the first affordable single family house in Northeast Ohio certified by the LEED for Homes program of the US Green Building Council. The preliminary LEED for Homes rating indicates it will qualify at the LEED Gold standard, with a possibility of Platinum. The house will also exceed Energy Star standards, the City of Cleveland's 2009 green housing construction standards, and the Enterprise Green Communities standards. Most importantly, it will be a long-term asset for the community and provide an energy-efficient, accessible, durable, healthy home for many decades to come.

At the ribbon cutting, there will be tours and information about the house and its construction.
