Abstract

The ''Guide to Residential Landscape Development" has been written for the Logan City Planning Department as a supplement to the "City of Logan Guidelines for Development", a comprehensive planning tool adopted in 1976. The Guide is primarily intended to motivate Logan homeowners in designing, constructing and maintaining their residential properties by pointing out methods of design and construction that :

reduce costs of electricity, oil and natura l gas by reducing energy needs

Increase property values

maximize effective use of the property

improve the aesthetic qualities of the homesite

The Guide also serves as a prototype of the kind of consumer adyocqcy tool needed in many cities to help inform private citizens. of the vital role they can play in conserving energy and improving the natural and cultural environment in which they live.
