Do you know which plants threaten the Charlotte landscape? Do you feel that Charlotte is doing enough to protect, improve and/or conserve our landscape?

If you love the Charlotte landscape, we invite you to join us on Tuesday, June 1, at 7 p.m. for the third of five discussions focused on the results of the Resilience Survey that circulated last November/December. The June 1 conversation will focus on the environment and natural resources of our town. The survey asked multiple questions around this topic, and we invite you to engage in a conversation around how we can improve and even better protect our environment. Take a few minutes and review the results of the survey.

Hosted by the Charlotte Community Partners, these community conversations are designed to give all of our residents the opportunity to voice their concerns, opinions and ideas on the various subjects addressed in the Resilience Survey. This group has met twice a month since last April and includes representatives from CCS, CCS PTO, Senior Center, Transition Town Charlotte, Seed Library, CVF&RS, the Charlotte Grange and others. With a mind toward learning if people thought our town was resilient and beginning the discussion of how to become more resilient if necessary, the group partnered with Vermont-based Community Resilience Organizations, which has run these assessments throughout the state. It’s now time to discuss the results!

Do you have questions or comments? Feel free to get in touch beforehand with Margaret Woodruff or Kevin Goldenbogen.

We hope you will take the time to add your voice to the conversation!
