Collaborative planning for wetlands and wildlife : issues and examples by Douglas R Porter( Book )

12 editions published between 1994 and 2013 in English and held by 566 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Collaborative Planning for Wetlands and Wildlife builds on past experience to propose guidelines for more effective planning, and it presents numerous case studies that demonstrate how different communities have creatively reconciled problems between developers and environmentalists. Both the plans themselves and the experience gained in developing the plans offer valuable insights for other communities facing similar dilemmas. This book answers questions asked by regulators, environmentalists, and developers who seek practical alternatives to the existing case-by-case permitting process, and it offers valuable lessons from past and ongoing area-wide planning efforts
Mitigation banking : theory and practice by David Salvesen( Book )

8 editions published between 1996 and 2013 in English and held by 297 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In recent years, the concept of "mitigation banking" has emerged. Rather than require developers to create and maintain wetlands on their own on a quid pro quo basis, mitigation banking allows them to pay for wetlands that have been created and maintained properly by others to compensate for their damage. The contributors to this volume provide an overview of mitigation banking experience in the United States, examine the key issues and concerns, and describe the practice of developing and operating a mitigation bank

The practice of sustainable development by Douglas R Porter( Book )

7 editions published between 2000 and 2006 in English and held by 255 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Going beyond the principles of smart growth and the new urbanism, the concept of sustainable development includes not only the physical elements of a community, but also the economic and social impacts of development and the long-term conservation of natural resources. The Practice of Sustainable Development is the first book to explain how development professionals can translate the ideals of sustainable development into practical techniques that consider the bottom line. Written by a team of experts, the book describes proven methods for site planning, designing, and building "green" projects that conserve natural resources, take advantage of existing urban structures, and improve the economic and social dimensions of a community, while considering the financial realities that developers must face. Packed with examples from throughout the nation, the book demonstrates how the latest technologies and techniques have been applied in projects ranging from small to large scale, in both urban and greenfield settings.
