Chief Executive Officer
Maintaining the Character of McHenry CountyMarch 10, 2006 • 8:00am – 3:30pm • Bull Valley Golf Club • 1311 Club Road • Woodstock, IL
Elected and appointed officials have a lot to think about and balance when reviewing ordinances and development proposals. Groundwater resources and water quality are just two of the many issues they are being asked to consider. Water resources — both their quality and quantity — are critical to the future prosperity of McHenry County. Well designed "conservation development" has the potential to both protect our critical natural resources while reducing infrastructure costs and future tax burdens. Fortunately, resources available locally and in the region can be tapped to help local officials in meeting the complex needs of their growing communities, including resources to help navigate the often burdensome environmental permit process. Additionally, a growing number of successful development projects in the region showcase how to balance economic and environmental/ conservation interests. At this conference, learn the benefits of specific conservation development techniques and how to implement them.
One of the featured speakers is Jack Porter, the developer of The Sanctuary in Bull Valley, the site of our 2005 Parade of Homes. The conference we will also have panels with regulatory staff, developers, and municipal officials.
Registration for this conference is $35 per person and the deadline is Friday, February 24th. After February 24th, registration is $45 per person. Click here for more information.
