Update – New Tools!

We’ve added a few more tools to this site:

Analyze maps and data is a new section that offers tools for easily accessing maps of your town or geographic region with information such as flood zones, trails, environmental issues, and more. We also include links to population and demographic data available through the U.S. Census and the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

The RE-Powering Electronic Decision Tree tool created by the EPA will help you determine whether your site has potential barriers to become a solar or wind project. You can find a fact sheet and a link to download the tool on the Reuse a property page under “Is your site viable for reuse as wind or solar energy generation?”

Finally, you can also find a step-by-step process guide to help you determine what matters most to residents and plan strategies to meet those needs. Visit the Mobilize Community page to download the Orton Family Foundation’s Heart and Soul Field Guide, located under “Create a community vision.”
