GUIDELINES AND PRINCIPLES FOR SUSTAINABLE LAND USE PLANNING: A STUDY OF LOW-IMPACT DEVELOPMENT STRATEGIES FOR GRAILVILLE, OHIO

by GHODE, MAYURA

Abstract (Summary)
A holistic perspective of LID principles in land use planning is a topic that has not been explored greatly, forming the basis for my thesis project. The integration of LID principles in land use planning process, results in a much clearer understanding of the concept of site-specific sustainability, as well as a better grasp of how to steer the conventional development procedure closer to more sustainable site development practices. This thesis will explore the issues related to conventional land use planning and zoning by investigating the impact of on-going suburban growth pressures that has been brought about by the conventional growth pattern. In Such situations LID plays a vital role in promoting environmental stewardship and protecting the available natural resources which otherwise would vanish soon in the conventional development process. It uses the land use planning perspective to evaluate LID principles as a better site sustainability option for the available study area, Grailville in Miami Township, Clermont County, OH.
