Building neighborhoods with a focus on the environment and agriculture
As our region grows, neighborhoods are popping up across the landscape. How can we encourage residential development that better protects our environment and supports agriculture? That's what we explored during our Power of Ten Forum Series event on September 15.
The forum focused on conservation development, which is an approach that allows for development while prioritizing the protection of natural resources, open space, and agricultural lands.
