How to generalize busy part of a DEM before making a hillshade.

Hello,

Is there some kind of function that I can run on a DEM before I make a hillshade that would mask out the building pads, driveways and roadbeds? I want to show the beauty of the terrain without the distraction of the land disturbances in the more urban area. My final map will bridge the edge of the city and the wilder public lands to our south.

Thanks for any advice.
