Description: The landscape is changing across the country, particularly in outlying areas of US cities. These fringe areas, often called exurbia, continue to move further from the city core. Their growth is largely created by new residential, commercial ,and industrial development. Dramatic land use and land cover changes in these areas from agricultural or forested to buildings and paved surface areas will continue, unless some efforts are made to preserve unique natural resources and portions of the original landscape. The research reported here shares results of a study investigating: (1) residential developers' desired land characteristics for neighborhoods and their views and concerns about their developments which include open space and recreation features and (2) residents' interest in open space, natural features in their lot and neighborhood, and recreation facilities. The benefits residents receive from open space and natural features are also explored.
