Community planning expert to speak

SHEPHERDSTOWN, W.Va. - Trying to imagine what the Eastern Panhandle will be in the future is a daunting task, but many local communities are struggling to do so. County and municipal governments try to stay ahead of the pressure on the land, and still encourage industry and growth.

To present some solutions to these and related problems, Edward McMahon, a nationally known expert in this field, will speak on "Balancing Nature and Commerce in Gateway Communities" at 7 p.m. Thursday in the Byrd Auditorium at the National Conservation Training Center near Shepherdstown.

McMahon is the director of the American Greenways program for the Conservation Fund and has written extensively on matters of community planning and development.
