This website supports the NEMO (Nonpoint Education for Municipal Officials) workshop titled “Conducting a Community Resource Inventory”. In order to effectively plan for your community’s future, you need to have a handle on the natural, cultural and economic resources your town possesses. The Community Resource Inventory (CRI) is quite literally the first step in the planning process. This site will enable you to develop a CRI for your town using available statewide information. A CRI is a list or atlas of the natural and cultural resources in your community. Although the maps contained are appropriate for community-level planning, they are not suitable for site level assessment. However, having a good set of town-wide inventory maps will help you and your town make decisions on the range of challenges: from open space preservation to economic development. Note: only available in the state of Connecticut.
