DNREC Climate Action
DNREC is the Delaware Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control. The public input sessions will be held in each of the three counties from 4:30 – 7:30 p.m. each evening: Tues Mar 3 in Georgetown, Weds Mar 4 in Wilmington, and Thurs Mar 5 in Dover. Wednesday's New Castle County session will be held at the Wilmington Public Library.
The workshops will provide an opportunity for Delawareans to learn more about how to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and better prepare the state for climate impacts. Workshop attendees will also have a chance to provide their thoughts on choices the state can make to more effectively take action on climate change.
Land Preservation Task Force
The New Castle County Land Preservation Task Force was launched in August 2019 with a focus on developing a countywide land preservation strategy. Land preservation has traditionally been approached in two broad categories, farm land and open space, which is reflected in this survey. Your answers to the survey questions in Item 1 above will help guide the Task Force in their work and development of recommendations.
