SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- The $1.5 billion downtown City Creek Center development is taking part in a program that promotes environmentally responsible development.

The project is part of the U.S. Green Building Council's pilot program on green development.

City Creek Center and the 204 other mixed-use developments in the U.S. taking part in the pilot program are employing new-urbanism practices that encourage walkable communities and more efficient energy and water use. The 20-acre mix of residential, retail and office space is also one of 60 projects nationwide selected by the council to participate in a focus group to complete a new standard for neighborhood developments.
