April 8, 2011, 8:30 - 4:00
Sheraton Uptown, Albuquerque

This all day seminar examined how we can better integrate local, state and regional water plans with local land use plans to support the sustainability of communities, protect the environment, and ensure economic vitality. The event brought together a wide range of interested parties from across the State, including land use planners, water resource professionals, representatives of the development community, environmental and community groups, and other interested people. Ideas for potential changes to planning processes to improve land use and water resource integration, and are achievable, were discussed.

Breakout groups in the ending part of the day allowed participants to share their ideas for improving processes. These conversations are captured in summary form along with the comference proceedings. See the links below.
