Provide between 5,000 and 15,000 new homes. 2. Build on good links to surrounding towns and cities in terms of jobs, transport and services. 3. Put back as much or more energy as it uses. 4. Excel in at least one area of environmental technology. 5. Meet new green standards for all buildings. 6. Provide at least 30% affordable homes. 7. Provide a minimum of one job per household reachable with public transport, by bicycle or on foot. 8. Enable anyone to walk no more than 10 minutes to access frequent transit.

  6. 6. KAUA`I COUNTY Management Training Applied Sustainability on Kaua`i GREEN BUILDING: TROPICS In the tropics, few of the green building techniques or LEED certification requirements apply because climate is so different. “Passive” design for the tropics is exactly the opposite of design for temperate zones. For example, “passive” in the north requires air-tightness, whereas “open air” is elemental in the tropics. Here are some tips for tropical design and building from Costa Rica: •Extended shade roofs • Cross Ventilation • Natural Lighting • Solar Power • Using Waste Heat to Dry Clothes • Living Plants for Shade • A Flat, Usable Roof • Recycled Roofing Material • Rainwater Catchment • Natural Coloring • Chemical Free Wall Treatments • Local Materials Use • Hire Local Craftspeople • Outdoor Garden Bathroom • Blackwater/Sewage Treatment • Saving Water • Integrated recycling & composting • Loft Spaces Geoff McCabe, Pura Vida Sunsets, http://www.puravidasunsets.com/green-building-tour.htmlThe Kauaian Institute Ken Stokes kauaian.net

The FLOAT House will in fact float up to twelve feet high with vertical guideposts and a raised four-foot chassis, prefabricated with polystyrene foam coated in glass fiber reinforced concrete. Its also a net-zero energy structure, on track for LEED Platinum: All the systems will sustain the homes power, air, and water needs -- itll be solar and geothermal powered, while the roof will funnel and reclaim rainwater. With 945 square feet of space, the interior has a living room, kitchen, and two bedrooms and bathrooms.
