Strategy RC5.5: Work with local governments, NCDENR, and other partners to protect critical habitats and key ecological corridors through the use of tools such as the Linking Lands and Communities assessments and the NC Conservation Planning Tool.

Strategy Description

Require mitigation (preservation or restoration of habitats) or impact fees to offset impact of development projects in sensitive areas. Encourage site design that locates built areas as far away from most sensitive habitats as possible. Encourage/require the connection of open spaces between developments.
