TORONTO, Jan. 27, 2012 /CNW/ - It was announced late yesterday afternoon
The Municipal Government Board (MGB) of Alberta have confirmed the Wind
Walk project represents no detriment to the Town of Okotoks. Thus
permitting the project to move forward. This follows on the heels of a
decision from the Queen's Bench on January 25, 2012.
"I believe this is a win/win situation," stated Holmes. "Wind Walk
represents a model for responsible sustainable growth. The entire
southern Alberta region can benefit from this sustainable community
model. We're still working towards being a net zero energy community
that can generate as much energy as it uses."
The project is the cumulative effort of numerous planning and
engineering consultants, public input, corporate partners, and selected
builders. All homes in Wind Walk will be built by Holmes Approved Homes
builders in order to uphold Mike Holmes' commitment to building
quality, green and sustainable homes. Currently these builders include
Avalon Master Builder, Avalon Central Alberta, Greenboro Homes, Todays
Homes, Taradar Fine Homes and Lifestyle Homes.
"It's been a long road, and still this is only the beginning," added
Holmes. But it's official, we're one gigantic step closer to Wind Walk
being a reality. I'm happy the MGB and Queen's Bench have confirmed our
position. You can't stop the right thing."
