In 2012, the Fairfield County Regional Conservation Partnership (FCRCP) realized we needed to have a set of deeper conversations among our members in order to develop a plan for the future. Specifically, we needed to answer the following questions:
- What actions did we wish to take in partnership?
- Which of these are most important?
- Which may require funding and/or assistance to be successful?
Beginning in March 2013, our nine-member Steering Committee began to carefully answer these important questions. Monthly Steering Committee meetings, two full Partnership meetings, and on-line surveys captured the concerns, ideas, and priorities of members from over 20 organizations and agencies.
