April 2017
The focus of the meeting was on nature-based economic development. We had four speakers explore this topic. Dr. Mitch Renkow, Professor, NCSU Department of Agricultural and Resource Economics, gave a talk on Comparing Costs and Benefits of Different Land Uses (PPT below as a pdf) which resulted in a good discussion on how conservation lands can be economically valued. Neha M. Shah, Director of Travel & Tourism, Pittsboro- Siler City CVB, discussed the Economic impact of tourism in Chatham County (PPT below as a pdf). Joe Jacob, Haw River Canoe & Kayak Company, gave us a business prospective on the topic. Joe had a philosophical and down to earth understanding that we need to keep in mind, as a business person, you have more of a voice than as an environmental. Also there is more currency in life than money. We rounded out the meeting with a talk from Sarah Weller Pegna, Coordinator for Chatham Health Alliance, who told us about the new Exercise is medicine program in Chatham County and how it relates to need for more trails and passive parks.

Meeting Notes and PPT






January 2017
The meeting included recent information regarding the Chatham County Comprehensive Plan Update. Presenters Jake Petrosky from LandDesign and Meg Nealon from Nealon Planning facilitated a hands-on workshop for attendees to provide feedback applying the green growth toolbox principles to the Big Woods area. We were excited to have had so many attendees from a diversity of backgrounds, including agency representatives, small business owners, and landowners.

The focus of the meeting was on farmland conservation. The Erin White from Community Food Lab, shared the work for a regional farmland conservation assessment and strategy that they have been working on with the Conservation Trust for NC and other project partners for the Triangle Region. Erin concentrated on sharing the findings for Chatham County. Leigh Ann Hammerbacher, Triangle Land Conservancy, shared TLC's recent efforts to preserve land within Chatham. We ended by heading up to Granite Springs Farm for a tour with Meredith Leight of conservation practices on the farm.

January 2016
The rivers of Chatham County provide important natural resources for our community, including fish and wildlife habitat, recreation opportunities, and drinking water. We had two speakers at on January quarterly mtg: Elaine Chiosso, from the Haw River Assembly, spoke about the impacts sludge (solid waste from treated wastewater) has on the Haw, Deep, and Rocky rivers. Dr. Detlef Knappe from North Carolina State University informed us about 1,4-Dioxane, an industrial solvent found in Pittsboro’s drinking water, and its long-term risk factors.
