- First of all, save the date for our annual CAC-EMC Roundtable! The 2020 Roundtable will be held on Tuesday, February 25th from 6:30-8:30 PM at the Farm & Home Center (2715 Route 44, Millbrook, NY). The snow date for the event will be Thursday, February 27th, at the same time and location. This event is our annual forum aimed at bringing together all of the CACs/CBs in Dutchess County, the County’s Environmental Management Council and others to discuss common successes, challenges, and goals for the future. This year will also feature a presentation on Dutchess County’s single-use plastic prevention campaign as well as continued discussion on the Climate Smart Communities Program and CCEDC’s support. More details to come. We hope to see you all there!
- Secondly, the Wappinger Creek Watershed Intermunicipal Council will be holding its Fall Quarterly Meeting (last of the year) on Friday, November 15th from 9:00-10:30 AM at the Farm & Home Center. This meeting will focus on the final steps of the Wappinger Creek Nine-Element Watershed Management Plan, including presentations from two of our watershed municipalities, the Town of Pine Plains and Town of Wappinger, as well as a presentation on the nearly-finalized Watershed Characterization and Recommendations Report by KC Engineering. We welcome any municipalities within the Wappinger Creek Watershed or Dutchess County as a whole to attend and share your questions, comments and/or concerns pertaining to local water quality and watershed management.
