COAST to Take Walking Tour of ‘Sustainable Neighborhoods’

Dennis Allen of Allen & Associates will lead the final walk of the season

This Wednesday, COAST will host its final Walking Wednesday of the season with Dennis Allen of Allen & Associates.

The walk is titled “Sustainable Neighborhoods” and will be held from 5:30 to 7 p.m. Wednesday.

The group will meet at 433 W. Micheltorena St., on the corner of Micheltorena and Olive streets. There is parking available on Laguna between Micheltorena and Sola.

This walk will feature two green projects, one a whole house remodel that doubles the amount of living space within the same footprint and the other a four-unit platinum LEED condo project.

At the first project, participants will have a chance to see how homes are tested for energy efficiency. In walking between these projects, we will look at and talk about elements that create sustainable neighborhoods.

Allen & Associates is a sponsor of Walking Wednesdays. We hope everyone will come out to support COAST’s final walk of the 2012 season.

— Caitlin Carlson is a project director for COAST.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
