UC Davis West Village Rising it's First Green Building! - Green Living Guy
UC Davis West Village, the largest planned zero net energy community in the United States, will hold an open house and ribbon-cutting ceremony to celebrate completion of its first 350 apartments, recreation center and village square. The celebration, from 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m., will feature speakers, tours and a barbecue. All events are free and open to the public. “UC Davis West Village is a tremendous achievement — something that all of us on campus and in our region can take great pride in,” said John Meyer, vice chancellor of Administrative and Resource Management. “It has been achieved with a network of open spaces, parks, gardens, pathways and courtyards that provide the high quality of place and community that Davis is known for. We invite everyone tocome out and experience this remarkable community for themselves.” Phase I of the community’s construction has generated some 300 jobs and created new apartments that will house 850 students, faculty and staff. Phase I also includes the Sacramento City College Davis Center, the first community college satellite on a University of California campus.
