Best Practices for Economic, Community and Environmental Benefits: Compact and Conservation Development

What is conservation development?
This is a planned unit development incorporating special standards, up to 50 percent open space conservation, for better resource management on the site, while creating a high quality development of significant value. It applies to both new development and redevelopment situations.

What is compact development?
This is residential, commercial, or mixed use development that approximates densities and quality of life similar to traditional neighborhoods. It can apply to new development as well as redevelopment areas.

Who Should Attend:
Elected and appointed officials dealing with land use, environmental, and storm water issues and professional planners.

This workshop is suitable for beginners through advanced. It's a chance to see conservation development and compact development projects in different settings and ask questions of the experts involved in their development.
