Living with the Land: The Case for Conservation-Oriented Development, Saddle Mountain, North Carolina


Abstract:
While new residents to the mountain region of North Carolina bring a much-needed boost to the mountain economy, development also threatens the environment that makes the region a desirable place to live. It is imperative to explore alternative types of development that accommodate growth without compromising the natural beauty or resources of the mountain landscape. One promising alternative is conservation-oriented development, which harnesses the economic engine of development to help protect the natural environment.
