New gas station. It was going to be a Chevron, but now it'll be a Shell. We told 'em "no yellow canopy!"

A subdivision. It's gated -- something that's no longer permitted in the town.

Some construction in the aforementioned subdivision. In the Orlando area, most homes are built from concrete block -- it's so they can survive both hurricane-force winds and termites.

A house in Old Town. It looks like a frame house, but like most of the others it's made from block.

We've been reclaiming the lakefront. This used to be all blighted. The smokestack across the lake is gone, being replaced with $180-200,000 condominiums....

Yes, it is. Every hear of the company Books Are Fun? He recently sold the company for $380,000,000 to Readers Digest. We have many houses in that style, although that is the largest. I couldn't get a shot of the pool area with its fake mountain water slide.

Check out this link for more on this style http://www.mgc-vastu.com/

NHPlanner - We have one of those in our city as well. It is a cogeneration plant that provides steam to a five-acre indoor growing center and the UW Whitewater campus. It is a great asset to the city.

You have an Eco-Industrial Park? Tell me more, tell me more...
