This is the first LEED for Homes certification in Northern Colorado, according to McWhinney, developer of Centerra.
The community was constructed with an emphasis on residential health, comfort, productivity and preserving the surrounding natural environment. Equalizer Lake is part of a 275-acre environmental preserve.
