Which would you rather live next to, the conventional subdivision or the conservation subdivision? Which one do you want in your community?

Landowners used to only have two choices - either continue to own their land and conserve it, or sell it for development and see it destroyed.1 Ideally, we'd be able to preserve many tracts of land as open space.

Sadly, there is very little money available to purchase and preserve all but the most unique properties. And most landowners are seeking full equity and are not in a financial position to preserve land using traditional methods.

Preserve Your Community Character
Conservation subdivisions (above right) preserve the rural character of your community, protect wildlife, water quality, valuable natural resources, reduce flooding and water pollution, and conserve your important tourism and agricultural economies.
