Projects that include multiple parcels of land and can range in size from 100 acres to a region with multiple conservation villages  and hamlets or neighborhoods. Some projects are full service and ongoing while others engage in a planning vision workshop to identify opportunities

Projects

Chattahoochee Hill Country

Formed in the early 2000s, the Alliance’s primary purpose was to advocate for an alternative development pattern for 40,000 acres of southwest Fulton County. Atlanta had grown primarily inside of its northern “favored quarter,” as coined by Chris Leinberger, leaving rural areas to the south and west essentially undeveloped.

Planning for sustainable growth is the most effective way to protect resources upon which the economy and quality of life depend.

Pearlstone

Anchoring the campus with talent, vision, passion, and energy, an intentional community will attract residents from across the country to pioneer a cutting edge new pathway in Jewish life. Akin to an Israeli moshav, residents will live in smaller private spaces and come together for Shabbat and holiday celebrations, which shall also invite and attract outside community members into this immersive, pluralistic, inspirational Jewish communal atmosphere. Community residents will enhance and catalyze progress and impact throughout the campus, and also engage and inspire the broader Baltimore Jewish community.

Longleaf Preserve

The vision for Longleaf Preserve is to create a community that greatly enhances the daily lives of its residents by fostering healthy living through every element it offers. Initially seeded by a group of dedicated preservationists and farmers, the community vision seeks to incorporate principles of preservation, active lifestyles and “farm to table dining” into all aspects of the community.

Choice

The charette was conducted on August 18, 2012 at the campus of a local public charter school, Atlanta Preparatory Academy in Vine City. The intent of the charette was to conduct a community visioning session focused on identifying the urban agricultural potential for the Choice Neighborhood Atlanta planning area including three neighborhoods – Ashview Heights, Atlanta University Center, and Vine City.
