The Town of Washington, Village of Millbrook and Town of Clinton is working on a joint Natural Resources Inventory with New York State’s Department of Environmental Conservation and the Cornell University, Cornell Cooperative Extension.
A Natural Resources Inventory (“NRI”) is an accounting of a municipality’s natural resources. Natural resources include things like water, animal habitats, trees, and vegetation. It can also take account of a municipality’s cultural resources as well. NRIs are maps and narrative descriptions identifying these unique and varied resources.
NRIs enable municipalities to make informed decisions around land use. It is vital to fully understand the location and extent of our natural resources when making important decisions about town planning and zoning.
To learn more, come visit the Town of Washington and Village of Millbrook’s NRI Task Force members at this Saturday’s Farmer’s Market from 9:00am-2:00PM. The Task Force will have an information booth also on Saturday, July 15th and Saturday, August 19th, so if you cannot make it this Saturday, please save those dates!
