Presentation 2. Fred Snow will discuss how conservation commission involvement in Comprehensive Plan updates can make a difference with examples from town plans he has consulted on. He will also present some ways to build support for projects and encourage participation. He has more than 25 years of experience in community planning and is president of MEACC.

Conservation Commission Share Time. Each attending conservation commission will share through a spokesperson what and how they have been doing the past year and any concerns and lessons learned. Attendees at past annual meetings have found “Share Time” invaluable.
