"Residents of a community have thoughts and ideas about what makes their surroundings and community visually important and attractive. They generally enjoy views of open fields, farm settings, mountain vistas, water views and tree shaded streets, qualities that make people feel positive about their environment. The challenge is to preserve these visual attributes while working them into our future development. The following suggests a process for:
- Identifying scenic areas in a community
- Providing a clear statement in the master plan about goals for preservation of scenic values, and
- Incorporating specific policies into the zoning ordinance, subdivision regulations and site plan review regulations that will enhance the aesthetic qualities that define the community and make it unique."
