In New Hampshire we may be using something called "lot size averaging", which allows for clustered and slightly more intensive building in exchange for putting other land into open space protection (protected through a restriction through a zoning easement or a permanent conservation easement granted to a conservation organization approved by the Planning Board or to the Town of Lyme) We have 120 acres and will build 16 homes to begin, with (in the longer term) another 8 at full price and 4 as "affordable" . The tax benefit may be that our assessed value (for property taxes, which are high in NH as we have no income tax) might be reduced. liz Liz Ryan Cole lizryancole [at] mac.com Pinnacle CoHousing at Loch Lyme Lodge Lyme, NH Home 802.785.4124 Work 802.831.1240 On Jul 21, 2011, at 12:19 PM, Audrey Watson wrote: > > At Winslow cohousing in Bainbridge Island, we put 1 acre of woods (we > have 5 acres) into a conservation easement with the Bainbridge Island > Land Trust.
