Description
As green design rises to the forefront of master planning and development, four coastal resort towns in Florida's Panhandle offer valuable lessons: Seaside, Rosemary Beach, Alys Beach and WaterColor. Inspired by traditional communities, they are models for compact, walkable neighborhoods, but rarely are they recognized for deep environmental sensitivity, long before it was fashionable. Nearly 40 years after Seaside was designed, much can be learned about conservation and resiliency, form, connectivity and diversity, economical, incremental and sustainable development.
