Open Space Plan

The Shelburne Natural Resources and Conservation Committee (SNRCC) completed work on Shelburne's updated Open Space plan in mid 2017, and the Selectboard approved the document at a meeting held on August 8, 2017. Shelburne's first Open Space Plan was prepared by the SNRCC in the mid 2000s and adopted by the Selectboard in 2006. Like its predecessor, the new Open Space Plan emphasizes the benefits of open space, highlights the vital role of local funding for conservation, and illustrates a range of implementation mechanisms and strategies. The Plan was updated thanks to the efforts of a subcommittee of SNRCC members including Sean MacFaden and Peg Rosenau,with design assistance provided by Joanna Ralston and editing assistance provided by Wes Dunn.
