'Eco-village' proposed at OSU

— STILLWATER (AP) — Campus housing at Oklahoma State University could soon see solar panels and goats.

The Oklahoman reported Sunday that OSU officials are developing a housing option designed to encourage social and ecological awareness among residents.

The project is known as an eco-village.

Philippe Garmy is a clinical instructor in OSU's hotel and restaurant administration department. He's worked on the project with Melanie Page, the director of OSU's Institute for Creativity and Innovation.

Page said she'd like to see the eco-village bring in goats for lawn care.

Garmy says OSU's Residential Life has expressed interest in the project. He said the institute expects to have plans ready to submit to administrators by mid-spring.
