Many Towns develop Open Space and Farmland Protection Plans to help guide their protection efforts.

DLC helps towns by reviewing these Plans to ensure that they include the necessary and available tools to ensure the municipality’s goals. DLC can also help a Town plan its protection strategy. DLC can help Towns develop a Priority Resource Inventory which can provide the cornerstone upon which a protection strategy can be built. Developing a Priority Resource Inventory provides the sound reasoning to guide a municipality’s evaluation of what areas should be protected and what areas could allow future development.
