HISTORY OF FCHOA MAJOR GREEN PROJECTS (2009-2015)
 
Ford's Colony Homeowners Association, FCHOA, has had tremendous success in applying Green solutions within the common areas at Ford's Colony.  These solutions have had a highly positive impact on our environment while often reducing operating costs.  Below is a review of our major Green projects from 2009 to 2015.  You can view an overall summary page, as well as detailed descriptions of individual projects.

GO GREEN TOPICS
 
Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle
You will learn about the resources that James City County offers residents so we can properly Recycle and dispose of items we no longer want.
 
Conserving Energy, Water, Land, and Nature 
Conservation is the central green theme and, indeed, the driving force behind any significant green efforts.       
 
Managing Stormwater Runoff
Effects of a rainstorm can often result in soil erosion and movement of undesirable chemical deposits and waste from where it originates to where it might be deposited.  As individual homeowners, each of us can help to reduce stormwater runoff by applying landscaping and other techniques to make our soil more porous so it absorbs rather than dispatches stormwater downstream of us.
