The problem.

Champaign County’s population is projected to increase 37.7% between 2010 and 2035. Development to accommodate this population growth could disrupt the county’s natural systems, but it doesn’t have to do so. In this class project, I created a master plan for a fictitious development to demonstrate techniques for developing both sustainably and profitably.

The solution.

Flaxton Park is a sustainable, mixed-use development proposed for an 810-acre site southeast of Mahomet, Illinois. The Flaxton Park community is designed around the idea of low-impact development, a paradigm that minimizes the hydrologic impact of development by reducing impervious surfaces and applying other best management practices. In its land use, transportation, stormwater, sewer and green infrastructure, the plan takes advantage of—and minimizes the disruption to—natural systems.
