751 MIXED USE COMMUNITY MASTER PLAN• Durham, North Carolina

In addition to housing, the plan includes an elementary school and a small retail/service sector with live-work units. POOLE DESIGN and Morris Beacon Design worked closely to ensure the most progressive and environmentally sensitive stormwater management techniques were used—and placed in ways that protected the ecology and were aesthetic enhancements to the property. Of utmost importance was that the plan remain rural in character and acceptable to neighboring residents who would enter their own property through the new development. The plan was embraced by the community and is currently under development.
