Farmland Preservation & Open Space Planning
Careful planning and designing of the built
environment are essential for the development
of sustainable communities. However,
just as much attention should be paid to
the natural and agricultural resources of
a community, it's Green Infrastructure.
At Heyer, Gruel and Associates we have developed
the expertise to help communities understand
and protect these resources while simultaneously
enhancing the quality of life for residents.
In essence, its all about sustainability.
Open Space planning at HGA focuses not only on playing
fields and woodlands, but also on pocket parks and wildlife
habitat. Our Farmland Preservation work requires
cooperation, knowledge of local conditions and a technical
expertise in soils and the business of agriculture.
Environmental Resource Inventories help communities
understand the resources that exist around them and can
guide development regulation and resource protection
