The Green Neighborhoods Alliance is made up of planners, environmentalists, state and municipal officials, lawyers, developers and real estate agents. The Alliance has been working together since 1997 to promote Open Space Residential Design on the North Shore and throughout Massachusetts. Realizing that the only way to promote a change in residential land development would be to work as a team, the Alliance successfully brings together a wide array of opinions and diverse interest groups. The Alliance meets in Wenham at Massachusetts Audubon Society, North Shore Conservation Advocacy office.
