Pike County Conservation District Hosts Workshop for Municipal Officials




Pike County Conservation District hosted a workshop on February 15, 2017 to discuss ways the Conservation District can work with the local municipalities to benefit residents. The workshop was held at the Best Western in Matamoras, PA. All Pike County Municipal officials were invited as well as representatives from the Pike County Office of Community Planning for the presentation and discussion. In attendance were representatives from Blooming Grove, Delaware, Dingman, Lackawaxen, Porter, and Shohola townships.
Executive Director Sally Corrigan provided a brief presentation about the programs and services offered by the District. The presentation highlighted not only the regulatory programs administered by the District, but also services such as grant writing assistance, technical guidance on municipal projects, and connecting municipalities with other environmental organizations in the region. After the presentation there was an open discussion on ways the District and Municipalities can work more efficiently to provide services to residents and visitors to Pike County. All in attendance agreed the relationship between the District and Municipalities is important to serve the residents of Pike County and is currently working well. Increased communication and training for Municipal staff members on District programs and services were identified as future goals to improve services for residents and visitors.
Pike County Conservation District was established in 1956 by the Pike County Board of Commissioners and has worked actively since then to carry out programs focused on conservation of soil, water and natural resources. The District is governed by a Board of Directors who meet monthly to help plan programs, guide staff and coordinate efforts which provide conservation assistance and education in Pike County. District staff provide technical assistance for residents on natural resource and watershed conservation, groundwater protections, grant writing, and program administration.
