Description:Blue Sky Meadows is comprised of 40, single family, affordable homes. The project was funded using Affordable Housing Tax Credits, and was designed to be sustainable and energy efficient. Blue Sky achieved LEED for Homes Silver Certification and the homes are also Energy Star Certified. The project was also a grant recipient of the Illinois Energy Efficient Affordable Housing Construction Program. Each house has its own covered front porch, back porch and attached garage. The interiors boast cathedral ceilings in the main living spaces, with open floor plan kitchens and living rooms. A quarter-mile, lighted walking path connects to the main site sidewalks, providing stops at a playground, community center with grills and picnic tables, and seating areas along the path. The path also provides a connection to the adjacent local junior high and high schools.
