Conservation Subdivision Design: Considerations on Common Perceptions (G3307-01)

Author: Z. Aslıgül Göçmen

Conservation subdivision design (CSD) is a site-planning approach that clusters residences in smaller lots to reserve a significant portion of a subdivision for common open space. CSD can provide numerous benefits, such as wildlife habitat protection, improved stormwater runoff management, expanded recreational and open space, and reduced need for infrastructure maintenance. This publication clarifies the principles of designing, developing, and permitting conservation subdivisions by addressing common perceptions surrounding residential development (6 pages; 2016).

Tobacco Streak Virus in Cranberry (A4110)

Authors: L. D. Wells-Hansen, P. S. McManus

Learn about the symptoms of and recommendations for TSV-positive plants (4 pages; 2016).
