The Plan provides a road map for the Society to create an economically viable resource that enhances quality of life for local residents and encourages economic development through heritage tourism.</span></p> <p><span style="color: #333333; font-family: 'Georgia',serif;">Presently, the Shaker buildings and landscape, known as the Church Family Site, are owned by Albany County, are underutilized, and are not fulfilling their potential. The goal of the Site Master Plan was to articulate a vision that would turn the site around. The Plan includes a Conservation Policy that established an internally consistent framework of principles for evaluating proposed plans and actions that will affect the historic resources and their context. The Church Family Site was divided into a 34.5-acre Conservation Area to be utilized by the Society and all adjacent properties into an Economic Development Zone to be developed by Albany County. The Conservation Area was divided further into different Use Areas and Activity Zones that directly relate to the existing layout and use of the site by Society and by the Shakers during their residency. These uses and activities were refined into a 15-year Comprehensive Site Master Plan that is divided into three 5-year increments. A series of maps and construction cost estimates were developed to support the recommendations and to illustrate the topics of discussion.</span></p> <p><span style="color: #333333; font-family: 'Georgia',serif;">As a result, the aesthetics of the site will come to life and its sense of place will be re-established. The site will once again be a living entity where people fill the spaces and their noises fill the air. This project was recognized with a 2009 Merit Award from the Connecticut Chapter of the American Society of Landscape Architects. Since 2007, the Society has used the plan to guide its work as it undertook several building stabilization projects and worked to reduce adverse impacts of new development within the historic district.</span></p> <p> </p> <p> </p> <!-- /article-content --> </div> <div class="cleared"></div> </div> <div class="cleared"></div> </div> </div> <div class="cleared"></div> </div> <div class="albanyit-layout-cell albanyit-sidebar2"> <div class="albanyit-block widget widget_search" id="search-4"> <div class="albanyit-block-body"><div class="albanyit-blockheader"> <div class="l"></div> <div class="r"></div> <h3 class="t">Search Our Site</h3> </div><div class="albanyit-blockcontent"> <div class="albanyit-blockcontent-cc"></div> <div class="albanyit-blockcontent-body"> <form method="get" name="searchform" action="http://shakerheritage.org/"> <div class="search"> <input name="s" type="text" value="" style="width: 95%;" /> <span class="albanyit-button-wrapper"> <span class="albanyit-button-l"> </span> <span class="albanyit-button-r"> </span> <input class="albanyit-button" type="submit" name="search" value="Search" /> </span> </div> </form> <div class="cleared"></div> </div> </div> <div class="cleared"></div> </div> </div><div class="albanyit-block widget widget_text" id="text-5"> <div class="albanyit-block-body"><div class="albanyit-blockheader"> <div class="l"></div> <div class="r"></div> <h3 class="t">Programs and Events</h3> </div><div class="albanyit-blockcontent"> <div class="albanyit-blockcontent-cc"></div> <div class="albanyit-blockcontent-body"> <div class="textwidget"><a href="http://shakerheritage.org/programs-and-events/calendar"><img src="http://shakerheritage.org/wp-content/uploads/2014/09/calendar-month.png" class="shs-calendar"></a> </div> <div class="cleared"></div> </div> </div> <div class="cleared"></div> </div> </div><div class="albanyit-block widget widget_text" id="text-4"> <div class="albanyit-block-body"><div class="albanyit-blockheader"> <div class="l"></div> <div class="r"></div> <h3 class="t">Contribute</h3> </div><div class="albanyit-blockcontent"> <div class="albanyit-blockcontent-cc"></div> <div class="albanyit-blockcontent-body"> <div class="textwidget"><div class="contribute"> <form action="https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr" method="post" target="_top"> <input type="hidden" name="cmd" value="_s-xclick"> <input type="hidden" name="hosted_button_id" value="57QZP9DGXHLEE"> <input type="image" src="https://www.paypalobjects.com/en_US/i/btn/btn_donateCC_LG.gif" border="0" name="submit" alt="PayPal - The safer, easier way to pay online!"> <img alt="" border="0" src="https://www.paypalobjects.com/en_US/i/scr/pixel.gif" width="1" height="1"> </form> </div></div> <div class="cleared"></div> </div> </div> <div class="cleared"></div> </div> </div><div class="albanyit-post widget widget_text" id="text-6"> <div class="albanyit-post-cc"></div> <div class="albanyit-post-body"> <div class="albanyit-post-inner albanyit-article"> <div class="albanyit-postcontent"> <!-- article-content --> <div class="textwidget"><div id="TA_excellent882" class="TA_excellent"><ul id="wEkdz2YWcA" class="TA_links CeafCFwmVjr"><li id="GzJTFAPZfK" class="QWoYCSth83F"><a target="_blank" href="http://www.tripadvisor.com/"><img src="http://c1.tacdn.com/img2/widget/tripadvisor_logo_115x18.gif" alt="TripAdvisor" class="widEXCIMG" id="CDSWIDEXCLOGO"/></a></li></ul></div><script src="http://www.jscache.com/wejs?wtype=excellent&uniq=882&locationId=534391&lang=en_US&langversion=2"></script></div> <!-- /article-content --> </div> <div class="cleared"></div> </div> <div class="cleared"></div> </div> </div> <div class="cleared"></div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="cleared"></div> <div class="albanyit-footer"> <div class="albanyit-footer-t"></div> <div class="albanyit-footer-body"> <a href="http://shakerheritage.org/feed" class='albanyit-rss-tag-icon' title="Shaker Heritage Society RSS Feed"></a> <div class="albanyit-footer-text"> <p><br /></p> </div> <div class="cleared"></div> </div> </div> <div class="cleared"></div> </div> </div> <div class="cleared"></div> <p class="albanyit-page-footer">Designed by Albany IT.</p> </div> <div id="wp-footer"> <!-- Custom Facebook Feed JS --> <script type="text/javascript"> var cfflinkhashtags = "true"; </script> <div id="su-footer-links" style="text-align: center;"></div> <script type="text/javascript" src="http://shakerheritage.org/wp-content/cache/minify/000000/FctLCoAwDAXACzUGoRey6Qv4SVOainh7cfaTWdwMbdJAv97F9pZWljumG-kmKO4nKVD5CBZVChl7n5EyP51gBfVPHw.js"></script> <script type='text/javascript' src='http://shakerheritage.org/wp-content/plugins/wp-rss-multi-importer/scripts/show-excerpt.js?ver=4.4.2'></script> <!-- 51 queries. 0.587 seconds. --> </div> </body> </html> <!-- Performance optimized by W3 Total Cache.
