The Rural Design Workbook: Rethinking Conventional Development

This workbook is an easy-to-use collection of real-life development designs and recommended land use language for use by municipal planning boards as they review subdivision and site plan proposals. It has been developed by the Southern Tier Central Regional Planning and Development Board in conjunction with classes in Cornell University’s Landscape Architecture program, and emphasizes design which promotes environmental health and conservation, preserves the rural character, and provides financial benefits or alternatives.
