Pheasant Run is a conservation design subdivision developed by Nett Land & Development. It includes shared open space, a walking trail, and lots that are slightly smaller than the norm in rural subdivisions. This type of design allows municipalities and residents a way to build green space into residential land use.
Energy use is greatly impacted by our land use. Do we need to drive everywhere or is it possible to bike or walk? Exploring alternative land use ideas gives ideas for maximizing transportation fuel usage.
