Natural Resource Conservation and Open Space Planning
Chet Arnold, a Water Quality Educator for the University Of Connecticut Department of Extension, and the Associate Director of the University’s Center for Land Use Education and Research (CLEAR) will be the guest speaker at the Town of Beacon Falls Conservation Commission Meeting on Monday June 3.
A Natural Resource Inventory provides a baseline of information that can enable town decision makers and land use agencies to make informed decisions regarding development, conservation, and natural resource management issues. Getting a handle on natural resource conservation and open space planning at the local level can be a daunting task. In his presentation, Mr. Arnold will talk about natural resource information and mapping tools available to local commissioners and land trusts, and about how to use this information to assess open space needs and opportunities within your town. There will be a live demonstration of some of CLEAR’s web mapping tools, and plenty of time left for discussion.
Members of municipal boards and commissions as well as the public are cordially invited to attend. The meeting will begin at 6:30 pm and will be held in the Assembly Room at Town Hall, 10 Maple Avenue in Beacon Falls.
