Every day is Earth Day in this city of about 2,500. In April the city decided to recommend in its bylaws that all new residential construction earn Earth Advantage certification. While Wilsonville used Earth Advantage standards in its Villebois development in 2003, this is the first time an entire city has applied these standards in their bylaws. Earth Advantage homes must meet strict green building demands such as using a minimum of 15% less energy than standard homes. About 3,000 homes were Earth Advantage certified in 2006. Earth Advantage also partnered with the Medford office of Habitat for Humanity to make the nonprofit’s 2007 homes environmentally friendly.
