A generalized effort is used to describe and apply a development guidance system to an urbanizing watershed. Presently, the participants in the process operate within different spheres of interest and varying time frames. An essential objective is to identify a natural unit of the watershed as a focus for development that will permit the realization of objectives in a simultaneously integrated manner. Participants are real estate developers, public interest groups, a parks department and general city management concerned with public works and investment priorities. A development guidance system that will admit public interest groups to the decision process and adjust private developer's interests through granting premiums for environmental conservation is recommended.
