Low Impact Development (LID) (Massachusetts)

Description: 

Low Impact Development (LID) is a more sustainable land development approach that begins with a site planning process that first identifies critical natural resource areas for preservation. Development patterns based on conventional zoning codes in Massachusetts often result in "sprawl" with its associated large impervious areas, loss of natural resources and habitat, increase in nonpoint source pollution, and alteration of hydrologic systems.
