"In our way of life, in our government, with every decision we make, we always keep in mind the Seventh Generation to come. It's our job to see that the people coming ahead, the generations still unborn, have a world no worse than ours and hopefully better. When we walk upon Mother Earth we always plant our feet carefully because we know the faces of our future generations are looking up at us from beneath the ground. We never forget them."

                                          Oren Lyons, Iroquois tribal leader

Many of the qualitites that make Mountainside Village a vibrant neighborhood also serve to increase our responsibility to our surroundings, and we are not the only ones who think so!  As a result of our efforts, we have been awarded a 2006 Idaho Smart Growth Award and a Gold Certification under the the Greater Yellowstone Framework for Sustainable Development in 2014.

Sustainability is not an afterthought at Mountainside Village. It is integral to all we have done. Sustaining the health of residents while having a lighter environmental footprint is a result of our holistic process. The Village is pedestrian friendly, has protected solar envelopes, and a performance, form based design code.
