Impacts of Conservation Design
With an understanding of the present, we can look toward the future and the potential role of conservation design on a regional scale. The following research describes the relationship between conservation design and several indicators including stormwater quality and quantity, biodiversity, air quality and greenhouse gas emissions, energy consumption, community character, public health, economics and land value, and infrastructure cost. This research will assist in the development of the GO TO 2040 Plan.
Please note that the indicator research for conservation design compares conservation design to conventional development practices.
