Open Space and Land Use

Promoting and protecting the community and our environment


1. Develop and maintain a sufficient open space system so that it is diverse in uses and opportunities and includes natural function/wildlife habitat as well as passive and active recreation with an equitable distribution of parks, trees, and pathways throughout the community. 
2. Implement land use and transportation planning and policies to create compact, mixed-use projects, forming urban villages designed to maximize affordable housing and encourage walking, bicycling, and the use of existing and future public transit systems. 
3. Residents recognize that they share the local ecosystem with other living things that warrant respect and responsible stewardship.
