|Based on previous studies conducted by County Planning, the development of this guidebook centers on the following four parts:|
Part 1 - An open space planning primer that answers the "why", "where", "what", "when" and "how" of this planning concept.
Part 2 - Heightens the community's awareness of basic design principles as open space design ordinance language becomes drafted.
Part 3 - Provides case studies which explain how the open space planning concept has been applied in Hamburg Township, Michigan.
- Contains a model open space ordinance, a starting point for other
local communities that are attempting to draft similar language.
