Camp Common Ground - Starksboro, Vermont

Camp Common Ground purchased a beautiful property to use for their family camp.Their goals were to protect the property and to use a portion of the land in a sustainable manner. We were hired to provide overall land use and permitting assistance and to complete architectural design services for an environmentally oriented family camp. Work is based on sustainable guidelines, principles and implementation measures. More than 75% of the property will be permanently protected through donation of development rights to the Vermont Land Trust. Materials from the property and the region will be utilized.The planning process has included camp members and staff, wildlife consultants, foresters and landscape architects, as well as neighbors and town residents.
