Citizens: stronger aesthetic and environmental standards wanted

Envision Hanover on June 8 released results of its Visual Preference Survey which offered citizens the opportunity to comment regarding development design standards. 

High on the list for respondents were pedestrian and bicycle friendly thoroughfares, more neighborhood street trees, generous vegetated buffers, accessible open spaces for both active and passive use and scaled, people-friendly architectural design.

Citizens have expressed their preferences for years on development standards. It is time for the County to require a better product from developers.

A memo summarizing the feedback received can be found HERE. The full list of open-ended responses received is available online HERE.
