Join Todd Powell and Rose Fagler with Plum Creek and Envision Alachua for an interactive presentation and conversation about the planning process for land owned by Plum Creek in East Alachua County.

Plum Creek is the largest private landowner in Alachua County, with 65,000 acres. Nearly 24,000 of these acres are permanently conserved, almost 37%. The company’s holdings are located throughout northern and eastern Alachua County. 

Envision Alachua is a community planning process to discuss future economic, environmental and community opportunities in Alachua County on lands owned by Plum Creek.

The process is designed to be:

  • A holistic approach to sustainable conservation and economic development;
  • An opportunity for a unique partnership and collaboration between the public and private sectors; and
  • An open dialogue with community leaders representing economic development, business, local government, education, environmental, conservation and residents in Alachua County.

Envision Alachua features a series of six facilitated Task Force meetings that will take place over the next year starting in late June 2011. The charge of the Task Force is to help articulate a future vision for company lands in Alachua County, and provide a range of participation opportunities for county residents.

Power Lunches are limited to the first 30 LGAA members to register. RSVP today at www.lgalum.com or by calling Brite Whitaker at 352-224-1728 or bbwhitaker@lifesouth.org. Cost is $15 and includes a catered lunch.
