Hydrozone Design: Resources in Support of Water-Conserving Landscape Ordinance Requirements in Pasco County, Florida requires Adobe Acrobat
Author: Dänika Rain Randolph

Excerpt:"The first strategy, referred to as the 'hydrozone concept,' suggests a different conceptual basis for landscape design that compels designers to relate levels of water use with levels of human activity and with the ecological conditions of the site…The second strategy, preservation of native plant communities and use of native plants, considers existing vegetation to be existing areas of low water use, and encourages the use of native plants that fall into low water use categories for easier establishment, increased drought-tolerance, and regional eco-restoration."


Florida Sustainable Communities Summit Whitepaper requires Adobe Acrobat

Excerpt: "Audobon International and the University of Florida Program for Resource Efficient Communities hosted the Florida Sustainable Communities Summit to engage a variety of stakeholders - including more than 100 municipal planners, developers, architects, builders, natural resource managers, and representatives from regulatory agencies, universities, and conservation organizations - to strengthen efforts to foster sustainable development in Florida"


Stormwater Infiltration at the Scale of an Individual Residential Lot in North Central Florida requires Adobe Acrobat
Author: Justin Haig Gregory

Excerpt: "Managing stormwater at the scale of an urban residential lot is an alternative to stormwater management at a larger scale. By increasing the infiltration of stormwater on the lot, there will be an associated decrease in runoff and an increase in groundwater recharge. This thesis examined a number of aspects of small-scale stormwater management that are important if stormwater is to be managed at the lot scale."


Is a New Urban Development Model Building Greener Communities?
Authors: Kara Youngentob, Mark Hostetler

Excerpt: "This study is one example where a Neo-traditional model fared well in creating a sense of community, but did not do well in promoting environmental knowledge, attitude, and behaviors in its residents. Though the Neo-traditional residents felt that the designers of their development were more concerned with the environment than did residents of other neighborhoods, this failed to translate into higher levels of environmentalism among residents within the Neo-traditional development."
