Chatham Conservation Partnership Meeting
Date: Thursday, January 19, 2017
Time: 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.
Location: Chatham County Agriculture & Conference Center, Hall C
Address: 1192 US-64 W Business, Pittsboro, NC

Chatham County is seeking guidance from members of the Chatham Conservation Partnership on identifying areas of high development potential but also where there are priority natural communities and species of conservation need. The County would like to be proactive in these areas by developing conceptual development designs that maintain core areas of habitat and connectivity in these areas if they do become developed in the future.

Please join us on January 19 at the new Chatham County Agriculture & Conference Center in Hall C to provide input on protecting natural resources through a hands-on mapping exercise. See meeting agenda below.

The CCP steering committee is busy planning our 2017 meetings. Please take a minute and respond to a very brief online survey to help us with topic ideas and to assess if there are any changes we need to make to the CCP meeting format.
