The Habersham Town Plan was based on the planning principles inherent to small southern towns throughout the region. Prior to the first conceptual layout, we toured many small southern towns and studied the details that make up the aesthetic and functional character of these great places. Then we developed an extensive tree survey of more than 3500 trees, topography map, an aerial map, and an archeological map. Our town plan was intricately laid amidst the delicate natural landscape and areas of environmental sensitivity were designated as parks and greenways.
Another goal of the design is to create wonderful public spaces all around the homes. By creating streets that are safe and pleasant, one is naturally drawn out of the home to spend more time walking and getting to know neighbors throughout the town. As a result of neighbors knowing and caring for one another, there evolves an inherent sense of security.
