Elmina B. Sewall Foundation Awards Grant

The Elmina B. Sewall Foundation recently awarded a grant to Maine’s Sustainability Solutions Initiative (SSI) for a project titled, “The Maine Futures Community Mapper: Fostering Economic Growth and Healthy Landscapes for Maine‚Äôs Communities”. The project is an extension of an SSI project where researchers have worked for several years with Maine economic development, conservation, forestry, and agriculture leaders to identify strategic land use opportunities and potential conflicts. Using the Sewall funds, the team will use these results to begin development of a web-based planning tool for communities and land trusts to better balance conservation with economic development. More information on the “Mapping a Sustainable Future” project team is available on the SSI web site.
