Land Use & Open Space
Now is the time to plan a better future. We are helping communities protect valuable parks and open spaces, and make better decisions about what, where and how to build next. We do this by providing open space preservation workshops, an annual bicycle “conference on wheels,” and working to improve transportation choices in the metro region.
