Some meetings have a speaker. This time, we want to hear from you, our community, through an interactive event involving maps, markers, and small conversations among neighbors. Monica Przyperhart, of the Community Wildlife Program at Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department, will facilitate a process designed to recognize what it is, exactly, that makes Mount Holly special. Special to us, that is. For this event, you as a participant get to decide what you most appreciate about our place, and in this process, no one voice will be any louder than another. What do you love about Mount Holly? Here’s your chance to let us know!
After the event, Monica compiled the values identified by the separate groups and plotted them over a map of the town. We hope these data will be useful in future planning efforts as well as useful to the community at large. What do you value most about Mount Holly? Are there things our teams may have missed? If so, please get in touch. We would love to hear from you.
The meeting was a great success. Monica helped us form four different teams - each of which identified specific areas of value on a map of the town.
The Mount Holly Conservation Trust's mission is guided by the values of our community. In order to achieve our goals it is important to periodically assess what these values are - and specifically which features our community thinks are important to preserve.
On July 24, 2018, we were fortunate enough to host an event led by community value mapping expert Monica Przyperhart.
