Extensive planning has already occurred to maintain the character of the neighborhood, including perimeter landscaping, water features and walking paths. This not only creates the scenic resort-at-home atmosphere in the neighborhood, it allows for a substantial separation between property lines.
The proposed open space buffer is more extensive than most neighborhoods in Bloomingdale. In several locations landscaped berms will be installed to create a scenic natural buffer. At other points, water features, vegetation and walking paths create a substantial separation between existing and new residences.
