The Dows Farm master plan describes a process and vision for development that protects, leverages and enhances the site's strategic location, historic agricultural character and natural environments including the Squaw Creek riparian corridor.  Natural and man-made "green" spaces (including streetscapes, parks, community gardens...) provide linkages and destinations including the farm operations, The Barn marketplace, a restored ox bow lake and others, creating and connecting neighborhoods with each other and with sustainable diverse environments
