Alex Belensz

He spent five years as a regional planner in northern New Hampshire focusing on transportation planning, housing, and recreation, and has worked with public land managers across the country on issues of recreation, transportation, and visitor use management.

Outside the Office

Alex takes any opportunity he can to romp around the Upper Valley region of Vermont on foot, bike, or skis. He knows little about gardening but enjoys helping his more knowledgeable partner tend to their ever-expanding vegetable patch. Alex also enjoys making pizza from scratch, hanging out by rivers and ponds with his partner and their dog, and planning his next ill-advised bike adventure. He is also involved in his community, having served on local committees and volunteering with a local bicycle collective.
