MMRG will hold its 6th annual ‘CC Mixer’ on Thursday, September 27 from 5:30 to 8:30 pm at Nute High School Cafeteria, 22 Elm St, Milton, NH. The evening will focus on Natural Resource Updates to Town Master Plans, with guest speaker Matt Sullivan, Director of Planning and Development for the Town of Wolfeboro. The program will also feature networking, information-sharing, and brainstorming by Conservation Commissioners and municipal officials from MMRG’s seven service towns, Brookfield, Farmington, Middleton, Milton, New Durham, Wakefield, and Wolfeboro. The event is a unique educational opportunity for planning and development decision-makers in these communities and a chance for interested members of the public to learn about incorporating natural resources in planning.
A native of Milford, NH, Matt Sullivan took the position of Wolfeboro Planning Director in 2016, after six years as a Senior Planner and GIS Manager for Strafford Regional Planning Commission (SRPC) in Rochester, NH. He currently sits on the Governor’s Millennial Advisory Council and the Wentworth Economic Development Corporation Board of Directors. At this CC Mixer, Matt will discuss Wolfeboro’s current (2018-2019) community Master Planning process, which includes an update to its 2011 Natural Resources Inventory (NRI) and considers the impacts of natural resources on Wolfeboro’s culture, infrastructure, and economy. He will address the Town’s use of MMRG’s recently-completed regional Conservation Action Plan and how the Plan has been used to shape the vision, goals, recommendations, and overall comprehensive planning process for the community.
Members of municipal Select Boards, Planning Boards, Zoning Boards of Adjustment, Conservation Commissions, and others involved in community development planning are all invited to participate in a round table discussion sharing recent successes and challenges related to natural resources in Town Master Plans. The evening will begin with networking and complimentary refreshments. This event is free and open to the public but pre-registration is required.
