Environmental Protection

  • Protection of much of the Project site as permanently conserved open space. Open space will flow contiguously through the Project site, will connect with the Lafayetteville State Multiple Use Area, and will provide buffers for natural areas such as Ham Brook, wetlands and amphibian breeding pools.
  • Protection of water quality through a compact development pattern in consideration of site wetlands and streams, development of and connection to community water and sewer systems, and application of appropriate rural road standards and integrated stormwater management design standards.
  • Siting of development setback and screened from Route 199 to maintain the rural and scenic quality of the Route 199 travel corridor.
