Resource Assessment

Horizon Belt
We continue to help Kent land use boards maintain the scenic integrity of their town by identifying critical areas for protection using HVA's newly developed "Horizon Belt Methodology."

Resource Maps
A set of resource maps was completed for the Sharon Conservation Commission and the town is incorporating these in their Plan of Conservation and Development for 2005.Resource maps are nearly complete for the Kent Conservation Commission as well which they will use to update their Open Space Index with the assistance of HVA's GIS Department. Recently, the Cornwall Planning and Zoning Commission contracted HVA to produce a series of Resource Maps for their planning and development efforts.

Viewshed Analysis
HVA has also provided a resource assessment and viewshed analysis for the Lake Waramaug Task Force.
