I need some help in locating an example development/community. Specifically, I am looking for a large project (1000+ acres) that was developed in a primarily rural area which overcame major opposition by community activists in an attempt to keep the area rural and to not increase density. The project also needs to have been developed outside of an urban service boundary or utilized some type of mechanism to move the urban service boundary to include the project.
Can anyone think of any project that utilized "triggers" (such as surrounding development pressure, infrastructure demand, etc.) that would allow density increases when certain criteria were met?
Essentially, what I need help with is overcoming policies in the local comp plan that restrict density increasses outside of the urban growth boundary. I need creative and innovative examples of how this was done in other projects.
Thank you for any help you can provide!
