Rolling Meadows

This open space conservation development is located in rural Hiram Township on a rolling 75-acre site. The land planning objectives included protecting steep slopes, streams and wetlands and woodlands in addition to farmland by clustering the lots to create large tracts of open space.  This development is notable for its preservation of farmland, transfer of development rights from an adjoining parcel, and use of a conservation easement placed over all the open space.
