U.S. REP. RON BARBER WILL SPEAK TODAY AT GROUNDBREAKING FOR SUSTAINABLE HOME
TUCSON – U.S. Rep. Ron Barber will speak this afternoon at the groundbreaking for an innovative new home that will showcase new techniques and new products for sustainability.
“This is a forerunner of the type of home that our children and grandchildren will live in,” Barber said today. “I am excited that such a model of sustainability is being built here on the edge of downtown Tucson.”
The VISION House Tucson is being built by local homebuilder John Wesley Miller in his Armory Park del Sol subdivision on eastern edge of downtown.
Miller is a leader in building sustainable homes and all of the other homes in Armory Park del Sol have solar-energy features. But the VISION home, being built in cooperation with Green Builder Media, will be his most sustainable home yet, with features that save energy and water and generate little waste.
Also speaking during today’s groundbreaking will be Tucson Mayor Jonathan Rothschild; Michael Katz, president of the Armory Park del Sol homeowners association; Sara Gutterman and Ron Jones of Green Builder Media; and Miller.
Media is welcome to attend the event.
