Scenic landscapes, cultural and historic sites, scenic roads and historic landscapes are important contributors to the character and quality of life of our communities. Identifying and protecting these cultural and historic landscapes has been a primary focus at Dodson & Flinker since the firm’s founding. Scenic roads projects throughout the US and Canada, scenic landscape protection plans for the New York coastline, landscape conservation plans for major Berkshire cultural institutions and a civil war battlefield protection plan show the range of Dodson & Flinker’s cultural landscape preservation work. In addition to identifying cultural landscapes, Dodson & Flinker has been a national leader in demonstrating how historic settlement patterns and traditions can shape the future growth of communities. Since the mid 1980’s, Dodson & Flinker has promoted community design based on regional landscape and architectural traditions.
