Low-Impact Lot Development
Low-impact lot development emphasizes the importance of protecting the natural environment in and around your building lot. These natural environments, including wetlands, agricultural areas, rivers, and trees, can be protected by minimizing land disturbance, preserving open space, practicing erosion control, incorporating natural systems into design, and developing effective storm water maintenance systems.
This document discusses how to minimize environmental intrusion during on-site construction as well as during occupancy through:
- Storm water management techniques
- Habitat protection
