JUNE 2009      STAND members Bobbi Esmark and Daisy Foote are serving on the Town of Marbletown's newly created Sustainable Economic Development Task Force. This project's purpose is to provide an integrated plan to stimulate the local economy - one that is in keeping with our existing conservation achievements - and to secure a strong future for Marbletown. The need for such a project has been described in Marbletown's Comprehensive and Natural Heritage Plans.

The Task Force will take an integrated approach to examining particular subject areas, design a process for public input and consensus building, and finally, make specific recommendations to the Town for action. The work will be guided by the goals and values set forth in the Town Plan and the Natural Heritage Plan.
