Conservation Subdivision

Description: A conservation subdivision is a residential subdivision in which a substantial amount of the site remains as permanently protected open space while the homes are located on the remaining portion of the site. Under this approach, the community works with the applicant to fit the development into the landscape in a way that maximizes the protection of important natural and cultural amenities on the site and maintains the character of the community.

This chapter of the Innovative Land Use Techniques Handbook provides an overview of conservation subdivision principles and presents model ordinance language.
