Taking Care of What We Have

This workshop series Taking Care of What We Havehelped us focus our implementation strategies for two of the policies under Taking Care of What We Have: 1) Preserve large, contiguous areas of agricultural and natural lands, and 2) Improve water quality and work together on stormwater management.

 

Topic 1 - Preserve large, contiguous areas of agricultural and natural lands

 

The purpose of this topic is to identify areas of greatest priority for creating large, contiguous areas of protected agricultural and natural lands, and recommend how places2040 catalytic tools can be implemented to achieve that result.
