A Land Use Assessment is a tool used to balance growth with conservation of natural resources, such as wetlands, watersheds and lakes.
The Land Assessment is a simple, straight-forward management tool with two components:
1) a series of baseline maps that illustrate current land use and databases of supporting information and,
2) a brief report with specific recommendations for future implementation.
Together these components serve as a baseline of existing conditions at the time of the study; a guideline for new policies that will encourage orderly development and preservation of natural resources.
PELA professionals have provided their expertise to municipalities and have assisted them in the development of Land Use Assessments. For specific project information, please contact PELA GeoEnvironmental.
