P2 and GIS




Dear P2 Techies:

The Local Government Commission has recently developed a program with the
Environmental Systems Research Institute (ESRI) that provides free
Geographic Information Systems (GIS) software to those who are actively
engaged in pollution prevention. We think this is an extremely exciting
opportunity to use the most up-to-date technology to increase your
efficiency and effectiveness.  

GIS has important applications to the area of pollution prevention. Santa
Clara County P2 Program and the Santa Clara Valley Water District are
working on a joint project to use GIS to conduct an environmental
assessment and develop P2 strategies to protect groundwater recharge an
area with mixed land uses.  Suffolk County is using GIS to target their
pollution prevention program to those businesses most likely to pollute
ground water.  Erie County is using GIS to transform and present data to
local officials and the general public in an understandable map format that
allows them to actually visualize areas of concern.

We know there are many other interesting GIS applications either in use or
in the creative planning stages.  We would like to assist these efforts.  

There are several levels of participation available. You or your staff may
participate as a GIS Leadership Team, a Select Participant or a Standard
Participant.  A description of each program is attached.

If you would like to receive free ArcView software and participate in the
training programs, please fill out the attached application form and return
it to the Local Government Commission by May 15. 

We are excited about the opportunity presented by this program and look
forward to working with you to enter the 21st century with the newest
technology.

Sincerely,


JUDY CORBETT					      BRAD NORTON
Executive Director					P2 Project Manager
