Environmental Analysis and Development Potential in the Creswell Area of Harford County, MD


This project was undertaken as part of the UMD PALS program by graduate Landscape Architecture students in LARC 642 in the fall of 2018. It contributes to a series of courses addressing the development potential of the Creswell study area in Harford County. The objectives of this course were threefold:

  1. Identify abiotic, biotic, and cultural characteristics that significantly influence development patterns of the Creswell area;
  2. Undertake an assessment of developable potential of the Creswell area; and
  3. Visually document patterns of land use of the built environment for the understanding of potential development patterns of the Creswell area. This document is organized along the basis of these three objectives.
