PVPC's Environment and Land Use section works to protect the environment of the Pioneer Valley region, promote economically and environmentally healthy communities, and encourage sustainable land use. Working with municipalities, state and federal agencies, community organizations, non-profit groups, and private sector partners, the Environment and Land Use section promotes local action, regional cooperation, and state initiatives leading to wise use of our resources.
Environment and Land Use staff provide technical expertise and clear guidance that blends community goals with a regional vision to maintain community character, protect the environment, promote smart growth, address the needs of the underrepresented, and improve quality of life throughout the Pioneer Valley region.
