Committed to Preserving Green Space in Katua Falls
The trend towards the protection of green space in residential development is relatively new, but growing in popularity with home owners. Katua Falls is committed to creating a mountain experience; that lends itself to appreciation of the natural wonders which attracts us all to the mountains in the first place.
The preservation of 18% of the land mass reflects a strong commitment to a green community commons concept. The commons comprises the heart of Katua Falls, a quiet cove of towering ancient trees, two spring heads and native under story.
The curving main drive through Katua Falls circles around the green community commons. Since it is at the center, many of the home sites will back up to the quiet natural area, creating the impression of much larger properties, with an added benefit of undisturbed natural beauty out the back door. The land plan follows the contours of the land, not some cookie cutter format.
The walking trail, along the creek inside the green space, provides a destination for all owners and guests. The quiet cove provides a home to native flowers and local wildlife. Katua Falls will remain a refuge.
In addition, over 250 trees have been planted in the 15 acres of Katua Falls. The road sides have been hydro-seeded. Many of the native hardwoods were protected during development.
This community commons area could have provided many more home sites. Katua Falls choose to preserve the green space for the benefit of all, including the natural inhabitants. It is our hope that you will appreciate it as well.
