Wild Sage Housing
Wild Sage, a 34-unit, mixed-income, environmentally friendly cohousing project, is one of several small communities being developed in the Holiday Neighborhood, a new urbanist, sustainable, and affordable neighborhood rising from the site of a former drive-in movie theater in Boulder, Colorado. Wild Sage’s construction incorporates many sustainable features and all of the homes in the development are rated Five Star Plus, the highest score given by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Residents are expected to drive an estimated 30 percent less than the average American, pay 50 percent less in utility bills, and use 40 percent less water. Designed to encourage interaction among residents, the homes resemble tightly grouped townhouses.
