About this Event

On February 6th, Landscape Planner and Author Randall Arendt, notable for developing the concept of conservation subdivision design, will be speaking at a workshop at the Bromfield School Auditorium in Harvard, MA. Conservation subdivision design, known also as Open Space Residential Design, is an alternative form of subdivision that results in a significant amount of permanent open space being protected. Noteworthy for having written Rural by Design and a number of other books on conservation such as Growing Greener and Conservation Design for Subdivisions, Mr. Arendt will be leading the workshop through discussion of the concept, a focus on Harvard's proposed Bylaw update, and a design exercise using a Harvard example.

The workshop, to be held from 4:00 pm to 9:00 pm, will also feature speakers from the development community, designers, planners, and others who will share their perspectives and experiences related to conservation or open space design. Intended to attract citizens, board members, engineers, architects, landscape designers, and others, we hope you'll join us for this exciting event. The workshop is sponsored by the Town of Harvard, the Massachusetts Audubon Society, and the Massachusetts Smart Growth Alliance.
