As northern Michigan grows, many of you hope the growth does not resemble the “wipe out nature” model of endless “cookie cutter” subdivisions in southeast Michigan.
One effective, efficient solution is a balanced approach to development called “conservation design for subdivisions”.
The exellent article, “Go Beyond Encouraging Good Growth”, talks about the need to simply require conservation subdivisions in areas where land is slated for subdivision development. Read the article.
Note: “Clustered” and “clustering” are terms that can be misleading when used in conjunction with conservation subdivisions. Learn the difference between “clustering” and conservation subdivisions“.
Feel free to forward this article to anyone who cares about northern Michigan.
