Natural Resources Inventory

The Broome County Environmental Management Council and staff from the Department of Planning and Economic Development have developed the Broome County Natural Resources Inventory. This document takes stock of the County's natural resources and the benefits they provide. It provides a framework to guide policy, planning, management and development decisions in a manner that preserves the environmental, economic and social benefits and services that our local natural resources provide.
