RURAL CHARACTER STATEMENT

The Croton Heights Community Association has long talked about "maintaining the rural character of the neighborhood." As we work on development projects encroaching on the area, the committee overseeing developments in the area felt it was important to define what we mean. Following is our working definition. We would welcome suggestions from others in the community.

Land - stone walls preserved (they are part of the special attraction, history and cultural heritage of the area) - woods and trees preserved to as great an extent as possible (avoid clear cutting where woods now exist) - sensitive construction practices, reduced lawn areas (increased vegetative cover)

Homes - a design style in keeping with the historic nature of the farm and surrounding area (i.e. the exterior design of the homes complements rather than clashes with other homes/buildings in the area) - a variety of individual designs and sizes (to avoid the tract development look). To the extent that each house is individual and distinctive (design and landscaping) its value should be increased. - houses which are not so large that they overwhelm other buildings in the area (farm and near-by homes) - lot specific placement that fits the homes into the existing topography and vegetation (rather than the "cookie cutter" look)

Recreation ­ if provided in the area, to be a passive type (walking/bicycle/bridle paths)
