Within Hamilton County there are preserved lands which cannot be developed. These lands are held by governments, land conservancies, and private organizations. They make up approximately 17% of all the land in the County.
Past plans and recent public input indicate that having more transportation options is a priority that cuts across age groups, income levels and zip codes in Hamilton County. Transportation-supported land also makes up around 17% of Hamilton County.
That leaves us with nearly 2/3rds of our County falling into what we are calling the “in-between” land. This is land which is not in preserve, nor is it supported by existing or planned transportation infrastructure. It consists of natural resources, vacant land, agricultural land, residences on large lots, and rural communities.
