Planning Resources Inc. directed and worked closely with the Department of Planning and Development and together received an ASLA Honor Award. Planning Resources lead a
team that produced the Calumet Design Guidelines, which were aimed at private property slated for industrial redevelopment.
The document described and illustrated requirements for sustainable site design in the Calumet
area, providing information on soils, hydrology and ecology. The guidelines
ultimately enhance and support business and industry with the protection and improvement of the natural habitat.
These guidelines present important strategies for improving the Calumet
area and helping it to thrive as both an industrial center and a wildlife habitat.
