Sustainability is not an afterthought at Mountainside Village. It is integral to all we do. Our holistic planning prioritizes the health of residents and results in a lighter than average environmental footprint. The Village is pedestrian friendly, has protected solar envelopes and a high-performance, form-based design code. As a result of our efforts, we have been awarded the Idaho Smart Growth Award and a Gold Certification under the Greater Yellowstone Framework for Sustainable Development.


The qualities that make Mountainside Village a vibrant neighborhood also lighten our ecological footprint.
