Cascade United Methodist Church retained TSW to master plan a new 140-acre community modeled after the planning concepts developed in the Garden Suburb movement, which integrates a respect for nature, design excellence, and a higher calling to create a truly special community.
The vision for Cascade Acres will be achieved through the use of key hallmarks of Garden Suburb design. Curving streets and tree-lined sidewalks foster an intimate, safe, and green neighborhood setting, while discouraging speeding. As many trees as possible will remain in place to enhance the community’s park-like setting, which will include greenway paths and open spaces for residents to enjoy. Most importantly, the new Cascade Worship Center and peripheral charter school and recreational facility will serve as the community’s focal points, all within walking distance of residents.
