Jackson’s Grant is a 280-acre, planned residential development named for President Andrew Jackson who granted much of the land. The property’s existing features were retained as community assets during construction which allowed for preservation of much of the creek and woodlands.This development is unique in its approach to stormwater management in that it utilizes a series of large, dry and landscaped detention areas. By integrating the existing site features, the development gained attractive open space while reducing the impacts to the natural resources and the cost associated with earthwork and traditional underground infrastructure. The design of Jackson’s Grant promotes a healthy, active lifestyle with multi-use trails along the adjacent Williams Creek waterway. It’s representative of a new way to achieve sustainable community design.
