A recent Natural Homes Magazine article highlights the top 10 Green Built Neighborhoods in the nation, including Salem's Pringle Creek Community. As part of an interdisciplinary team, GreenWorks implemented a wide range of project objectives related to sustainable site design in Pringle Creek. GreenWorks design responsibilities included: collaboration on greenstreet design; design of rain gardens; public recreational spaces; the Village Green open space; pedestrian / pathway network; woonerfs; greenway enhancement; and overall landscape treatment. The project was awarded the Land Development of the Year Award in 2007 from the National Home Builder's Association.
"10. Pringle Creek (Salem, Oregon): mixed-use community with walkable neighborhoods, two restored greenhouses, and careful water planning and rainwater management."
