- A recipient of the EPA’s Energy Star Award for Excellence, the Louisville effort focused on a new HOPE VI mixed-income development called Liberty Green. The development consists of 689 new homes which all received Energy Star labels. All units will be 30% more efficient than the building code requirements, and the improvements include higher efficiency heating and cooling systems as well as enhanced ductwork.
In addition, the Louisville Metro Housing Authority received grant funding to support ACTIVE Louisville within the community where Liberty Green was under development. Projects included an inter-generational fitness program, bicycle recycling and a community clean up.
