Rotations: Moore Estates

In 2004, my grandfather sold the first portion of our family’s land to a developer for a 253 home suburban community. The design is a scaled replica of the planned lot map that was submitted by the developers to the city of Surprise, AZ. The site for the earthwork was chosen in its relation to the actual building area of the development. I mapped it out at a third scale using a CAD program and a GPS surveying crew. The 253 homes were planted in Sorghum, and the roads are seeded wheat.
