To prioritize actions, participants will receive $1,000 'Egremont Dollars' in $100 bills to spend across all proposed actions on those most important to them.
- Economic Development (including agriculture)
- Land Preservation, Protection, and Stewardship (including agricultural lands and climate change)
- Historic Preservation and Future Development (including building and site design and climate change)
