Pinewood Lake Master Plan 

This lakeside townhome community was constructed between 1969 and 1972. A 20-year master plan provides a guide for decisions on current maintenance as well as on future physical improvements and upgrades, incorporating current technologies and planning concepts to fulfill the community's vision for its future.

The plan aims to reinforce a community of a classical Early American revival style found in the townhomes and structures set in a natural landscape. Areas of high visibility and impact were identified for landscaping, while others were set aside as conservation areas. Native plant materials were proposed throughout the community to promote wildlife and reduce maintenance. Activity areas were designated to encourage a sense of community through neighbor interaction.

Planning concepts and goals are conveyed through simple diagrams, photos examples, and extensive use of photoenhanced images to help visualize end results.
