Investing in Open Space: Montco’s Return on Environment Study
Tuesday, October 25, 2022
This free public event will highlight Montco's new study, "Return on Environment: The Economic Impact of Protected Open Space in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania." The study shows impressive numbers. The “return” on the county’s protected open space is in the millions each and every year! Join us in person or online via Zoom to learn how protected open space—public parks and trails, preserved farmland, and private conserved lands—provides tremendous economic value in terms of savings, earnings, and avoided costs. MCPC and the study consultant will review the data measuring impacts of protected open space on home and property values, economic activity, environmental services, and direct use benefits relating to health and recreation. Some of the study advisory committee members, who have played key roles in protecting Montco’s valuable open space, will share inspiring success stories. A VIP tour of the remarkable Challenger Learning Center will be offered after the event!
