PENNSYLVANIA WILDS DESIGN GUIDE

The WILDS concept is defined and the guide provides examples that clarify the importance of preserving a community’s unique character and architectural style while promoting new development and growth that emulates preexisting community character.   

“Development placed and designed with care will be enjoyed by residents and visitors for many years.  In contrast, poorly designed or placed development can annoy people for decades, damage a community’s appeal, and have negative economic consequences”

(PA WILDS Design Guide, Page 1-5).

PENNSYLVANIA STANDARDS FOR RESIDENTIAL SITE DEVELOPMENT GUIDE

This on-line guide provides residential and commercial site designs that promote sustainable interconnected community redevelopment and growth while promoting multi-modal trail systems and roadways. 

“The character of a community or neighborhood is typically defined by the presence and quality of elements, such as architectural design and its relationship to a street, sidewalk/bikeway design, the presence of landmark structures and public places, and the quality of landscaping and signage”

(PA BLUPRINTS, 1997).
