    40. 41. Building Emissions (CO2) Annual CO2 (ton/yr)
    41. 42. Incremental Improvement Costs
    42. 43. Total Carbon Footprint (Building and Transportation Emissions)
    43. 44. Carbon Footprint – Conclusions <ul><li>Compact forms of urban development lead to less carbon emissions than those generated by typical, suburban sprawl development. Superstition Vistas should exploit the “free savings” of utilizing a well-connected and clustered form of urban development, to the extent that is feasible. </li></ul><ul><li>The cost of implementing “best” energy efficiency practices is high. Although the carbon savings is significant, the costs may be prohibitive for the “savings” achieved. </li></ul><ul><li>Because of the prohibitive cost to upgrade individual buildings to “best” energy efficiency practices, it may make more sense to consider large-scale alternative energy generation investments such as investing in a solar thermal plant (see APS sidebar). Less efficient buildings could then be run on renewable power at a lower cost with a similar carbon footprint then spending billions to reduce the amount of non-renewable power that buildings consume. </li></ul><ul><li>Investments in energy efficient technology are better spent on individual residential buildings than on large-scale commercial and industrial buildings. Improving insulation and cooling efficiencies in homes is more cost-effective and leads to greater carbon savings. </li></ul>
    44. 45. The APS Solana solar plant <ul><li>While a similar plant on the Superstition Vistas is not planned, the site contains suitable land that could help make any future development more sustainable. </li></ul>
    45. 46. Water Use <ul><li>Sustainability entails understanding the natural water footprint of an area and utilizing strategies to emulate those natural conditions upon development.  </li></ul>
    46. 47. Water Recycling Effluent Water Storage Tanks Rooftop Freshwater Ponds Golf Course/Landscape Irrigation for Grow-in Runoff Natural Wetlands Constructed Wetlands Parking Lot Runoff Wastewater Treatment
    47. 48. Potential Benchmarks <ul><li>Potable water demand </li></ul><ul><ul><li>100 gpcd average annual </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Irrigation demand </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Reduce demand by 50% </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Harvest 25% of rainfall </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Cooling water </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Recycle condensate </li></ul></ul>
    48. 49. Water Recycling <ul><li>Grey water reuse </li></ul><ul><li>On-site treatment and reuse </li></ul><ul><li>Harvested rainfall </li></ul><ul><li>Reduced sewage treatment volume </li></ul>
    49. 50. Landscaping Water Demand (gallons/sf/day)
    50. 51. Total Water Demand (Gallons/capita/day - Building and Landscaping)
    51. 52. Water Use - Conclusions <ul><li>When best plumbing and landscaping practices are used in all the scenarios, the water use only differs by a margin of 5 million gallons/ day, a relatively minor difference. </li></ul><ul><li>Landscape irrigation is the most significant consumptive use of water. Potable water can be used, but its use should be minimized. Changing the landscaping practices to include landscaping practices that promote water retention, xeriscaping, and rainwater capture helps reduce potable water use. </li></ul><ul><li>Nonpotable water sources, such as grey water, treated sewage effluent, and raw water are more appropriate for feeding landcaping and can often be supplied at a lower cost. A greater investment may be required for infrastructure to deliver this water, but the increased cost may be offset by lower water and treatment costs. </li></ul>
    52. 53. Urban Heat Island One of the most pressing issues for the Phoenix area is finding ways to reduce urban heat island.  Temperatures in Phoenix are 5 to 6 degrees hotter than surrounding undeveloped areas – largely because the surfaces of urban areas trap and reradiate heat. With the average temperatures forecasted to rise several degrees in the summer over the next 50 years, keeping our cities cool is vital for urban livability, as well as to reduce the amount of energy used for cooling.
    53. 54. Urban Heat Island <ul><li>Any development proposed for Superstition Vistas must include a comprehensive heat island strategy. </li></ul><ul><li>Incorporating light colored buildings, roofs, and streets; </li></ul><ul><li>Designing streets so that buildings provide shade during the heat of the day; </li></ul><ul><li>Planting drought-resistant shade trees with a large leaf canopy along streets and in public areas (even if it increases water consumption somewhat); </li></ul><ul><li>Directing storm water to feed water features and cool the air through evaporation; and </li></ul><ul><li>Designing neighborhoods to capture evening breezes. </li></ul>
    54. 55. Economic Development <ul><li>Of all the driving forces that will shape the growth of Superstition Vistas, economic development and job creation will be among the most important. </li></ul>
    55. 56. Economic Development Catalysts for Southeast Region Destination health campus, emphasis on research Health Care/Health Sciences Connections to Phoenix and Pinal, within SV Commuter Rail Viable alternative to I-10 leads through SV Freeways Significance of John Wayne Airport Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Influence Comprehensive regional open space strategy Open Spaces and Parks/Recreation Several regional HQs, one or two national HQs Major Employer Campuses/National Headquarters New public or private university on site Higher Education Leading edge of best practices Energy Sustainability/Climate Cultural facilities of regional importance Cultural Amenities Visitation patterns established; resort/convention hotels Resort/Hospitality/Tourism/Entertainment
    56. 57. Economic Development <ul><li>We used the EDTAC findings to develop a 3 stage scenario development for Phase B </li></ul><ul><li>The EDTAC categorized industries into three tiers based on this area’s advantages </li></ul><ul><li>Industries with greater competitive advantage were assumed to move to the region first </li></ul><ul><li>We designed Development programs around their needs </li></ul>
