This chapter discusses the importance of covenants, conditions, and restrictions (CC&Rs), which are legal documents that dictate how properties in a subdivision look and how they are managed. Strategies and examples are listed for how residents can update CC&Rs that support biodiversity conservation in a neighborhood. For developers, strategies and examples for creating CC&Rs that explicitly state environmental and biodiversity practices related to the homes, yards, and neighborhoods are discussed. For policy makers, how one can create policies that encourage developers to write environmental CC&Rs is discussed.

Keywords:   urban biodiversity, conservation, conservation subdivision, policy makers, developers, CC&Rs, deed restrictions, environmental landscaping, land stewardship
