Natural Resource Conservation and Greenspace
Natural Resource Conservation and Greenspace development and management uses natural elements and practices to safeguard resources such as land, water, soil, plants, trees, and animals. Good resource planning can reduce energy related to maintenance costs including the use of pesticides, herbicides and fertilizers and minimize the negative impacts of large environmental events such as rain and wind. Safeguarding source groundwater, wetlands, lakes and waterways while addressing sources of pollution preserves the health and character of the area for future generations.
