Green Space Plan

Develop, adopt, and implement a green space plan that provides for connectivity of permanently protected green space throughout the community. Setting aside the greenspace can be done through direct purchase by the local government, purchase of the development rights to the land only, or by working with local land trusts to focus their efforts to acquire conservation easement in the areas identified in the local greenspace plan.
  • We like to better protect our natural resources (such as streams, wetlands, etc.)
  • We'd like to encourage development to locate in areas most suitable for new growth
  • We'd like to increase the amount of greenspace or parkland in our community
