Title: Creating Healthy Communities Through "Greenways" Design 
Description: Indeed, many of the best towns and neighborhoods to live in include "greenways" and parks that connect neighborhoods to each other, to schools, to commercial and other centers. In addition, studies have shown that investing in landscape and greenway design can have tremendous economic benefits for developers and towns alike. This workshop will show how community planning that addresses the values of health and wellness through greenspace design can and does work. After a program that illustrates techniques and examples of this concept, participants will have an opportunity to apply what they have learned in a greenway network design exercise. The workshop will provide valuable information for planners, landscape architects, architects, members of planning boards, conservation commissions, and more. Event check-in begins at 3:30, workshop starts promptly at 4:00. Cost: HBRANH, Plan New Hampshire, & APA - Northern New England Chapter members: $75.00; all others: $90.00. Price includes light catered meal. CM credits have been approved by NNECAPA. REGISTER BY OCTOBER 17.
