“When going back makes sense, you are going ahead.” – Wendell Berry
This proposal is to create a compact Village of 125 acres, on a site totaling 500 acres, in southern Piscataquis County, Maine.
Development of the Village would be guided by a set of building covenants specifically composed to create a space, as it is built out, in the traditional city pattern of Europe and early North America, in which foot or bicycle was the primary method of transportation.
Motor vehicles would be parked at the perimeter of the development in a green belt of at least 375 acres, which other than the parking area, would be a permanently protected zone for agriculture and outdoor recreation.
