Eagle Mountain Goes Green

On Thursday the city, looking to get information on energy efficient home building, met with an expert in that field from a private company, Steve Mumford and city spokeswoman Linda Peterson told the Herald on Thursday. In addition, one of the city's inspectors is being trained on solar panels, and Mumford is working with the city's building and energy departments to propose future sustainable living ordinances for Council debate.

Those future proposals could target water conservation, zeriscaping, incentives for solar panels and windmills, community gardens, reducing the lot size requirements for windmills, and giving density bonuses for green-certified building.-Daily Herald
