Sustainable Communities Initiative

We, the undersigned, urge the Windham Board of Selectmen to accept the invitation to participate in the Sustainable Communities Initiative’s regional planning process and sign the partnership agreement with the Regional Planning Commission. A collaborative grassroots effort to integrate local interests, priorities and perspectives into regional plans and ultimately into a state-wide strategy will greatly enhance our rural oasis by integrating sustainable development goals and principles in our priorities for future development.

A majority of the towns recognize the benefits of being a part of this initiative and have signed on to be a contributing part of it. This is a collaborative relationship and does not take away from local control. HOWEVER, not being involved might put Windham at the risk of losing some control as our silence precludes our input and feedback while our neighboring towns make plans that affect our shared resources, opportunities, traffic and quality of life. It is in the best interest of Windham to ‘take a seat at the table’ from the very beginning, put forth our priorities and cooperate with our neighbors as they develop their individual plans and the regional plan for a sustainable future.

We can grow wisely by working with our neighboring communities and developments that closely mirror the scale and character of our rural town.
