This guide provides the reasons, steps, processes and marketing tools for conservation subdivision design. It builds on other works on this topic by incorporating modern tools of Geographic Information Systems analysis, habitat modeling, and best design practices for maximizing forest conservation and connectivity. It also takes a strong conservation approach to this design by focusing, not just on the notion of ‘open space’, which could be a lawn or a plaza, but rather on conserving habitat and restoring it where it has been impaired. Two case studies of real sites were designed in tandem with this guide’s writing, one in North Carolina and one in South Carolina. Referring to both studies, this guide takes the reader step-by-step through the design process and the challenges posed by implementing ideal design principles in the real world--with all the inherent site and policy constraints they typically encounter.
