This project focused on a site in Lancaster, Massachusetts with potential for development that contains possible habitat for rare species. The practices of low-impact and sustainable development were investigated and to applied to the site, keeping in mind the welfare of the possible rare inhabitants. Three example developments were designed: a typical high-impact development, low-impact, and low-impact with increased sustainability. Using the results from our studies and drawings, conclusions were drawn regarding the different designs, and recommendations were made to potential developers and townships looking to embrace low-impact options.
