Planned Residential Developments and Conservation Subdivisions

A decade of high growth in Delaware County has prompted several of its townships to re-examine their current Planned Residential District zoning ordinances and look for ways to improve them. The concept of development based on conservation principles is not a new idea, but has not been tried in Delaware County. The Conservation Subdivision has been a success in other states not only from an ecological point of view, but from a financial one as well. The RPC staff has developed a presentation that compares current PRDs in the county and presents a description of conservation principles and case studies. The presentation can be downloaded here: Part 1 (9.5 mb file), Part 2 (5.8 mb file).
