Roche Harbor Resort Master Plan

The Master Plan for Roche Harbor is a conscientious, carefully-considered plan intended to honor the area’s rich history while creating a modern, sustainable community void of sprawl – key components of a Traditional Neighborhood Development, or TND.

The plan’s primary objective: a town with a center and a defined edge requiring no more than five minutes to traverse by foot. This guiding principle allowed the design to grow from within while encouraging pedestrian and community activity.

Key aspects of the planning process included studies of shoreline codes and requirements with regard to the marina and waterfront buildings, and presentation of proposed changes to the community.

Kingston Master Plan

Kingston Master Plan

The scope of work for the Kingston Master Plan involved working with community members, property owners and municipal planning officials and drawing inspiration from sustainable small town living paradigms. Elements of the plan include walkable streets, single and attached housing, mixed-use buildings within the town core, and implementation of rain gardens to control and purify storm runoff to protect the near-shore environment. Care was taken to reduce paved areas within the village area—also to protect water quality.
