Sage Creek Ranch is located four miles south east of the City of Cody Wyoming. The three hundred acre property commands spectacular views to Heart Mountain and the Absoroka Range. Perched atop a grassy ridge, the cluster of ranch buildings is sheltered by a grove of mature cottonwood trees. Sage Creek flows below the compound through a retention pond of high ecological importance. dlandstudio designed an environmental development plan to identify and delineate sites on the property that would maximize profitability in future sale while simultaneously limiting environmental impact. Site selection required a balance of easy access, control of view, availability of water and protection of sensitive riparian areas. These factors helped us assess optimal feasibility of different development scenarios.
