Development and conservation can coincide
Trim's Ridge

The original farm stone wall and part of the farm pasture have been preserved at Trim's Ridge. This ten-acre conservation design subdivision, located in New Harbor, New Shoreham, RI, protects 3/4 of the site as open space.

The original zoning designated an unimaginative layout of ten one-acre lots, five on each side of a cul-de-sac, which would have destroyed the stone walls, pastures and natural areas. Thankfully, the developers were able to persuade local officials and neighbors to allow conservation subdivision design.
