    Lot Coverage Concerns: But with all the effort we went through to try to get the lot next door and an easement on that lot for a hiking trail, our multiple contacts with the County Planning and Zoning indicated that there is little possibility of exceeding lot coverage limits for our property which is in the Critical Area. But more recent studies and our archetect think that this can be mitigated possibly with a green roof and other mitigations so some of my earlier ideas to merge the functions into an upper and lower level for the new Meeting room with adult classrooms under and chlidren concentrated at the far end of the building as is not needed.

  • Two level idea (Upper level)
  • The lower level

    Surrounding Area:

    The Meeting house is surrounded by almost 50 acres of properties that are mostly natural areas. This includes the Luce creek watershed and a few other faith communities. We try to maintain a nature trail and have connected it to the many informal trails in the area and in particular the Unitarian Trail next door.

    This trail not only highlights the nature around us but also our many initiatives to clean up our energy, our water and our air. Examples are our solar panels, our rain barrels, our permeable parking lot and rain gardens as well as the many Unitarian initiatives such as their geothermal heating and cooling system and new raingarden and permeable sidewalks.
