Twice annually—in spring and fall, the South Mountain Partnership holds a meeting with partners as well as interested businesses, non-profits, and individuals to learn more about current initiative and on-going projects. The Fall Partnership Meeting is slated for Friday, September 13, 8 AM to Noon, with an optional lunch.
The meeting will include:
Welcome by Franklin County Commissioners David Keller and Robert Thomas and South Mountain Partnership Director Katie Hess
Update – Proposed Independence Energy Connection Electric Line
Lancaster Clean Water Partners – best management practice implementation with municipal, business, and non-profit partners
Precision Mapping for Water Quality Programs
Chesapeake Conservancy – discussion around creating a regional tool for planning and reporting
Programs to support Watershed Implementation Plans (WIPIIIs)
It is easy to register on Eventbrite. Go here to sign up.
The Fall Partnership Meeting hopes to connect local and county agencies and officials to technical and funding resources for planning and implementing WIP IIIs – all types of partners have a role to play and a contribution to make. In addition, the meeting will facilitate discussion and next steps for working as a region to attract more implementation resources to the counties and WIP teams in the South Mountain landscape (portions of Adams, Cumberland, Franklin, and York counties).
South Mountain Partnership meetings help to build and strengthen a network of organizations working throughout the region to preserve and conserve the landscape known as South Mountain, the eastern terminus of the Blue Ridge. Meetings are a way to spark conversation and collaboration across political and sectorial boundaries and help partners understand opportunities to engage in the on-going work of the Partnership.
