Forterra is dedicated to regional sustainability in all its dimensions – environmental, social and economic. Since 1989 Forterra has been at the forefront of landscape-scale conservation, restoration, and community-building efforts to help secure a positive future. Forterra secures places – urban, rural and wild-that are critical to a sustainable future for all in support of a healthy environment, community, and economy.

Forterra’s vision for Hamilton Center is a beautiful, net zero rural village development that will include housing at a price that is affordable to Hamilton’s residents.

Forterra seeks to learn from the experience and accumulated wisdom of the SWC membership as we pursue development and restoration activities.
