Check out this check list: ceds.org/Checklist.pdf
A 2-page Checklist from our friends at Community & Environmental Defense Services to help evaluate any proposed activity that might threaten your community or environment.
Topics covered in the checklist are:
· Clean Water,
· Traffic Congestion & Safety,
· Schools Overcrowding & Safe Streets,
· Tree & Forest Preservation,
· Buffering & Views,
· Property Value,
· Air Quality & Health,
· Fire & Emergency Medical Services,
· Park & Recreation Areas,
· Water Supply, and
· Historic-Archeological Resources.
The checklist addresses just a few of the many concerns related to the issues listed above. However, the selected concerns are those most commonly raised by citizens who contact CEDS from across the U.S. with questions about development and other project types. Guidance on assessing growth management beyond a single project is provided at: http://ceds.org/growthplans.htm.
