The Town Forest Planning Toolkit: Supporting recreation planning in small towns
Beginning in 2017 SE Group worked with VT Urban & Community Forestry Program (VT UCF) and an inter-agency working group of Vermont state agencies and the UVM Extension’s Tourism Research Center to engage 10 select communities in a robust planning process to develop action-based town forest recreation plans. An important overarching goal was to create a road map, The Town Forest Planning Toolkit, which provides all communities with an established and proven process to create plans for their own town forest. This session will include an overview of the project and discussion of the toolkits that were prepared.
