Residential Developments and Conservation Subdivisions
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
