I like the idea behind the Ameya Preserve. The property is designed to be an eco-friendly community in Paradise Valley, Montana. The Ameya Preserve will draw 100 percent of its energy from a wind farm and will use a water recycling system to irrigate the property. The preserve will also be part of a program where greenhouse gas emissions are offset by planned tree-planting on other property owned by the developer.
What sets this development apart is a unique program involving "cultural directors" who will provide residents with learning experiences ranging from fine cuisine to music to archaeological digs. Leaders in astronomy, archeology, biology, environmentalism, literature and visual arts will spend months at a time at Ameya as part of its Discoveries-in-residence program to study and share their work with residents and the world. There will also be a master guide program where residents can experience world class fly-fishing, hiking, horseback riding and wildlife photography, among many other pursuits. The development will be home to pre-designed homes, custom and estate lots. The goal is to build a small amount of homes on less than 500 acres and keep most of the 11,000 acres of land as open space.
