LowAreas with high development intensity (e.g., reduced forest cover, many roads crossing aquatic areas and wetlands, significant amounts of impervious surfaces, and extensive amount of armoring and structures along shorelines) and a low biological value (e.g., the little presence or low use by critical species or little or no presence of rare, endangered or highly sensitive habitats).
MediumAreas with either high or moderate development intensity and moderate or low insignificant biological value.
HighAreas with low development intensity (e.g., substantial forest cover, relatively few roads crossing aquatic areas and wetlands, low amounts of impervious surfaces, and low amounts armoring and structures along shorelines) and a significant biological value (e.g., the presence or high use by critical species or the presence of rare, endangered or highly sensitive habitats).
