PINEHURST FARM MASTERPLAN


A 400-acre dairy farm in upstate NY. The goal for the masterplan is to provide a framework for the long-term stewardship of the land. The plan allows for the sensitive, low-impact development of new residences and roads to allow family members to develop smaller, more cost-effective homes. A critical component is to ensure the long-term environmental health of the land by addressing current environmental issues (run-off, nutrient depletion, lake water quality) and planning for future uses. The masterplan must conserve and heighten the beauty of the land.

In 1950, there were 3,261 farms covering 75 percent of the land area. As of 1998—the most recent available data—there were fewer than 1,045 farms on less than 35 percent of the land.
