Guidelines for development / site planning process

A committee created a comprehensive plan for long-term land use and development over the course of the first year after we purchased the land in 1992. We adopted a participatory strategy, with public forums that ranged from 60 people working together for an entire weekend, to a final session of just 12 people for an afternoon. The resulting Guidelines for Development have proven to be an important touchstone and set a high standard for both social and environmental sustainability. At the same time a proposed site plan was developed, using the same participatory methods. The final site plan clusters the three neighbourhoods in a triangle with a Village Green in the centre. The Village Green includes a picnic area, a small pond, a day-lighted stream, and beautiful southern views. It provides a large outdoor gathering space so the entire village can come together for events.
