Town Seeks Input for Natural Assets List

The Town is seeking your help to develop a list of special and valuable natural places in our community. We are creating this list for future enhancements to our asset management plan, so we can work to help protect these natural assets in the future from climate change and other pressures.

A draft inventory is outlined below and we are seeking your input for further additions! What other environmental areas do you consider as assets in our community? Are there more natural elements you’d like us to consider protecting?

Please submit the form on the page linked below or email your submissions to our Climate Change Coordinator, Alexander Templeman, at [email protected]
