Environmentally Responsible Community Restoration
Sustainable Lakewood is an organization dedicated to reshaping NPU-Y
into a vibrant, thriving, green community just outside of downtown
Atlanta, Georgia. Sustainable Lakewood aspires to foster a community
that practices recycling, community service, green living, and outdoor
activities. Go to About Us to learn the specifics of the Lakewood Eco District and the Lakewood LCI Plan.
Sustainable Lakewood seeks to attain its goals through a three phase approach:
Phase One (Education & Community Redevelopment)
Education – Educate existing residents about what they can do individually to minimize waste (i.e. recycling, home weatherization measures, appliance upgrades, greywater/rainwater harvesting and redistribution) and
Community Redevelopment – Acquire abandoned and foreclosed properties, “greenovate” the homes and create a cadre of affordable, LEED-certified / Earth Craft-certified homes to attract new responsible homeowners.
Phase Two (Streetscape, Landscape & Third Space Elements)
Phase Three (Commercial Center & Economic Stability)
