More Avesta Housing news, strangely. They cut the ribbon today on the Pearl Place Apartments, "Maine’s first Leadership
in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certified affordable housing development," according to a press release sent out today. The 60 (cat-friendly) units, located at Oxford and Pearl streets, are also endorsed by the U.S. Green Building
Council. They're listed for rent at between $639-1064/month, with income limits.
If future tenants are properly educated about the green aspects of their digs, sustainable and affordable housing developements are the next step toward ensuring that "eco-friendly" doesn't mean "elitist."
