Mapping Town Resources

The challenge of balancing growth with environmental protection can be overwhelming for land use boards and commissions. Many a frustrated conservationist, town commissioner, or developer can tell stories which could have had happier endings if better information had been available more quickly. This is where HVA can help your town. HVA offers a fee-based service program which can provide GIS and land planning services to landowners, municipalities and other organizations.

Using its Geographic Information System (GIS) and land-planning skills, HVA assists local communities and organizations in guiding growth and development in the watershed. The speed and vast information database of the GIS drastically reduces the time needed to research, plan, and map the environmental effects and consequences of various land uses and decisions.
