The Last Green Valley is seeking proposals to develop a workshop series for municipal officials as part of its sustainable communities program.
TLGV plans to offer a series of high quality workshops in the fall and spring that will assist municipal decision-makers in understanding their roles and responsibilities. The workshops will be free or low cost for municipal boards and staff. Targeted boards include: planning, zoning, inland wetlands, conservation, zoning board of appeals, agriculture, and selectmen. The workshops will focus on the tools board members need to serve effectively, including but not limited to legal authorities and requirements, discretionary decision making, web-based mapping resources, map and plan reading, running meetings and hearings, and creative land use development techniques that conserve natural resources.
The Last Green Valley is seeking proposals from qualified respondents to produce the workshop series. The deadline for electronic submissions is July 19. For information or to obtain a copy of the request for proposals, contact Lois Bruinooge at (860) 774-3300 or at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Last Green Valley is the member-supported, nonprofit organization working locally to preserve the irreplaceable land, water, and cultural resources of the Quinebaug and Shetucket Rivers Valley National Heritage Corridor, the last predominantly undeveloped green space in the coastal sprawl between Washington, D.C., and Boston.
