MILWAUKEE SUBURB SEEKS ECO-FRIENDLY DEVELOPER With financial incentives in hand, Germantown, Wisconsin officials hope to attract development of a so-called conservation subdivision that could gain national recognition for safeguarding the environment. The Conservation Fund, a national group, promises to help design the project and promote it as a model for protecting water quality in the Great Lakes region. "I hope it will change the way we do business," says village planner Sig Strautmanis, "convincing us to use smaller lots and protect more open space." ..To get developers' attention, the Plan Commission is offering financial incentives like basing sewer-service area calculations on the total size of the site, not just on the space suitable for development. ..Two projects are already underway in Huron, Ohio and Niles, Michigan.
