MEACC Annual Conference
Saturday, October 21, 2023
9 AM to 1 PM
Keynote Speaker: Eamonn Hutton
Eamonn Hutton from Viewshed Consultants was the principal author of a recently completed, outstanding Bridgton Open Space Plan. Eamonn will discuss how the plan was prepared and how it sets forth a vision for the Town’s open space resources with a focus on resilience, connectivity and activation. The plan was fully funded with a grant from the State’s Community Resilience Partnership Program.
Speaker 2: Fred Snow, MEACC
Fred will tell us how to enroll in the Community Resilience Partnership Program. The program’s enrollment steps, Bridgton’s experience enrolling, and Manchester Conservation Commission’s recent beginning with the enrollment process will be discussed. Fred Snow has worked as a community planner and is president of MEACC.
Conservation Commission Share Time: Each attending conservation commission will share through a spokesperson what and how they’ve been doing and any concerns or lessons learned. Attendees of past annual conferences have found “share time” invaluable.
Networking Lunch: We will be offering lunch along with an opportunity to network with other conservation commissioners.
Location: The conference will be in the Morrell Meeting Room at Curtis Memorial Library in Brunswick located at 23 Pleasant St., which is on the corner of Pleasant St. and Middle St. After passing the front of the library take an immediate right on Middle St. The entrance to the Morrell Meeting Room fronts Middle St.
