Sullivan Renaissance Seminar on Wednesday, October 5

September 15, 2005


[LIBERTY] – Communities have a variety of tools available to help them shape their appearance.  Land use training specialist Peter Manning will describe these techniques at the Sullivan Renaissance seminar “Community Design Tools: Taking Control of Your Community’s Character” on Wednesday, October 5 at 7:00 p.m. at the CVI Building in Liberty.


Representatives of Sullivan Renaissance projects, municipal officials, code enforcement officers and interested citizens are invited.  Pre-registration is requested since space is limited.


Participants will hear about tools ranging from simple design guidelines to landscape ordinances to architectural review boards.  The seminar will look at some practical approaches that can be applied to both public and private development, and explain some basic design concepts.


For the past three years, Peter Manning has worked for the NYS Department of State’s Division of Local Government at Watershed Office in Margaretville, where he provides assistance to the communities of the Catskill Region.


He was previously employed by the Delaware County Department of Planning and Economic Development where he provided training and technical assistance to municipal planning boards.  Manning has also worked as a planning consultant, cartographer, and landscaper. He has a bachelor of arts in geography from SUNY New Paltz and a master of landscape architecture from Cornell University.


Sullivan Renaissance is a two-phase aesthetic improvement program of the Beaverkill Foundation with support from the Gerry Foundation.  It has funded over 165 projects in all 6 villages and 15 towns in Sullivan County over the last five years.  Details of the 2006 program will be announced at the Winter Forum in February.


To register for the seminar on “Community Design Tools” or for more information, call Sullivan Renaissance at 845-295-2445.  Representatives of Sullivan Renaissance are available to visit a community to explain the program.
