Shaping the Future of Your Community Workshops
Mass Audubon’s Shaping the Future of Your Community Outreach and Assistance Program has two workshops scheduled for this spring:
Smart Growth in Suburban Commercial Corridors: Route 9
Sponsored by Mass Audubon’s Shaping the Future of Your Community Program and the MetroWest Regional Collaborative
Join us for this exciting program, kicking off the Route 9 MetroWest Smart Growth Plan. If Route 9 were to be built out with no regard to regional planning, it could become a true traffic nightmare. This workshop will discuss methods of development and re-development for use along Route 9 to minimize traffic congestion, encourage pedestrian, bicycle and public transportation access, and promote the health of both humans and wildlife. Featuring speaker Randall Arendt, Senior Conservation Advisor at the Natural Lands Trust and an expert landscape planner, site designer, author and lecturer.

Conservation Subdivision Design Workshop
Sponsored by Mass Audubon’s Shaping the Future of Your Community and Metropolitan Area Planning Council
This workshop session, also featuring Randall Arendt, will present a practical, easy-to-use technique that enables developers and local officials to work together to accomplish their different objectives, namely the construction of full-density residential subdivisions in such a way that helps to build a community-wide network of permanent conservation land. The program will be extensively illustrated with numerous financially successful examples of conservation subdivision design, together with a straight-forward four-step methodology of laying out residential developments around the central organizing principle of open space conservation.
