Why a New Name?
While we will continue to use the term “conservation subdivisions”, it will be helpful to have an alternate name more conducive for use in informal conversation and a 30 second elevator pitch/speech.
In one-on-one informal surveys, while a few people did not mind the term “conservation subdivisions”, many more told us the term has a negative connotation. People told us they thought the word “conservation” is “too scientific” and “subdivision” is a “negative, disliked term”. Plus it’s a mouthful to say.
As we are a group promoting conservation subdivisions to preserve water quality, natural areas, wildlife and working farmland, we felt we better come up with an alternate term that does not bring up instant rejection.
