Wild OnesWild Ones of Door County presented its 2006 Award to Ellison Bay Development LLC,
developer of Cottage Glen at Ellison Bay.
In keeping with the goal to live in harmony with the environment at Cottage Glen, several awards have been given to our community.
Wild Ones of Door County, Native Plants, Natural Landscapes group, recognized Cottage Glen in 2006 with their annual Green Award for a business that demonstrates environmental responsibility and concern. Among the features leading to this recognition are clustering of housing units allowing much of the property to remain in its natural state; minimal proportion of impervious surface; restoring the septic field acreage to native prairie; and deeding the 5.5 acres atop the Niagara escarpment to Door County for perpetual conservation. Developer Peter Reddin commented, “Developers don’t usually receive awards from environmental groups.” He was pleased to be recognized for his efforts to create a community with nominal impact on the land and surroundings.
The award plaque is on display in the Rec Center at Cottage Glen.
