Overview

The state-owned portion of the Lapeer State Game Area (LSGA) is 8,246 acres. It is located in Lapeer County in Southeastern Michigan. This thesis evaluated the impacts current and future residential use inside the LSGA's Dedicated Management Boundary surrounding the LSGA that consists mostly of private lands. This was accomplished by utilizing landscape ecological metrics to quantify changes in the patch structure of non-built landcover types over the last 28 years (1978-2006) and for two alternative future development scenarios; The first scenario was a build out based on the full capacity allow by current zoning regulations in the townships surround the LSGA and the second was a build out that implements strategic conservation measures to protect ecologically significant non-built landcover patches. This study showed that increased residential use from 1978 to 2006 has altered the patch structure of non-built landcover types. Projected increases in residential use under the capacity scenario showed further impacts to non-built landcover. Projected residential use under the conservation scenario showed that the preservation of ecologically significant patches could reduce the impact of residential use on non-built landcover patch structure. This research was intended to demonstrate methods incorporated biological information into both the planning efforts of the local municipalities and those for the LSGA.
