COURSE DESCRIPTION:
The last two decades have seen the emergence and increasing marketability of a new style of land development.

Through presentations, case studies and interactive exercises, this course provides "why" and "how-to" advice to members of the development community and others interested in practical, cost-effective ways to apply the principles and techniques of environmentally sensitive development to the real-estate industry.
