Villages of Piedmont at Leopold's Preserve
Haymarket, Virginia
Villages of Piedmont at Leopold's Preserve (VOPLP) was approved in May 2012 and broke ground in October 2013. Located in Haymarket, Virginia, it has been touted by Prince William County officials as a model for preservation-oriented land planning. VOPLP offers an impressive open space commitment of more than 380 acres and a unique and thoughtful solution to progressive land use management and finding the balance between human population growth and the preservation of natural habitats.

VOPLP will complete the balance of the existing Villages of Piedmont Community which consists of a mixture of 413 single family homes and townhomes, with the addition of 393 new homes (132 single family and 261 townhomes) in a unique cluster design with strict architectural guidelines to ensure a quality community reflecting styles and features that are in keeping with the existing community.

"By definition, conservation development is about developing and managing land in harmony with nature."

Conservation development is a controlled-growth land use development that adopts the principle for allowing limited sustainable development while protecting the area’s natural environmental features in perpetuity, including preserving open space landscapes and vistas, protecting farmland or natural habitats for wildlife, and maintaining the character of planned and existing communities.
