In late 2017, the Select Board subscribed to MapGeo, a property and mapping tool hosted by the Strafford Regional Planning Commission. The site has been available for several months and we are now hosting a demonstration on MapGeo. If you haven’t had the occasion to visit the site, the workshop will serve as an introduction; if you have been exploring it and have questions or comments, the workshop will hopefully provide the opportunity to receive some answers.
