Dealing with Change in the Connecticut River Valley

A Design Manual for Conservation and Development

Robert D. Yaro, Randall G. Arendt, Harry L. Dodson, and Elizabeth A. Brabec

June 1988, English

Copublished with Environmental Law Foundation


In a cooperative project between the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Management and the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, 19 towns and cities along the Connecticut River were involved in developing practical planning standards to balance community preservation and future development. This critically acclaimed manual uses striking perspective drawings, plans, and photos to explain how any community can use creative planning guidelines to accommodate growth while preserving rural landscapes.
