Verified ZNE District: Anna Maria Historic Green Village
Case Study / December 19, 2015 / Getting to Zero
The Anna Maria Historic Green Village is an unusual combination of historic restoration and modern technology. Owners Mike and Lizzie Thrasher have worked diligently to preserve four 100-year old buildings and merge history with state-of-the-art green technology, all while bringing jobs and economic development to local residents. The Village is currently home to a number of mixed-use buildings including a café, art gallery, boutique and local outdoor equipment outfitter. More businesses are planned, and the aim is to add renewable energy sources so even as the Village grows it will continue to achieve its target of zero net energy.
