An educational forum titled "Forging A Vision for Simsbury: Balancing Conservation and Development" will be held on Thursday, January 26th at 7:30 PM at Eno Memorial Hall, 754 Hopmeadow St.  Tom Condon, award-winning columnist and editor of Place, the Sunday Commentary section in the Hartford Courant, will moderate.  Featured speakers include:
Concerns about land use and recent major development projects and proposals have become hot-button issues in Simsbury over the past year.  The complex issues of encouraging appropriate economic development and cost avoidance to municipalities, limiting tax increases, and retaining important open land with perpetual value for recreation, water and quality of life will be discussed.  All speakers understand these competing concerns and will offer their views on resource protection and how to move forward and manage growth successfully in a town like Simsbury.    
The forum is sponsored by Keep the Woods.  Doors open at 7:00 PM and presentations begin at 7:30.  Refreshments will be served and admission is free.  In case of weather-related cancellation, the snow date is February 7, 2006.  For more information call 860-760-6281 or visit
The official flyer for this event is available here.  For additional background information, review the recent educational campaign published in the Simsbury Post.
