Synopsis: An existing land plan, known disparagingly as “The Rib Cage Plan” for its endless rows of parallel streets and same-sized lots, was reconfigured as a conceptual land plan to provide an improved circulation plan, facilities for the conveyance of large volumes of storm water runoff from the desert mountains above the site, a golf course, and a diversity of residential lot sizes.
