The Conservation Commission was assigned the task of conducting a Scenic Resources Inventory under the 2006 Plan of Conservation and Development. Because "scenic" is a highly subjective value, the Commission formed the Community Resources Inventory ("CRI") Committee, composed of members from all City wards and political parties, to assemble the inventory. The Commission also solicited public input.
CRI Committee Members:
As of February 2009, an inventory draft has been completed and can be viewed using the menu on the right. Comments should be directed to Teresa Gallagher, Conservation Agent, 924-1555 x315 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The CRI Committee compiled a spreadsheet of scenic resources and identified the following possible attributes for each resource:
It became apparent during the inventory process that while all CRI Committee member were knowledgeable about some of the scenic features, none of the members were familiar with all of them, and it was easy to lose track of why the various attributes had been selected. It therefore became imperative to go back and document the justification for each attribute. This is shown at the bottom of each scenic listing.
