Looking forward to seeing you at the AOT Annual Meeting!

Laberge Group will present 3 sessions at the 2019 AOT Annual Meeting to help communities like yours navigate your most pressing issues:

Brookhaven United – Lessons and Takeaways from the $19.7 million Award Winning Municipal Consolidation and Efficiency Competition

Monday, Feb 18 | 10:30 ‐ 11:20 a.m.
Booth/Edison Room, 5th floor of the Times Square Marriott Marquis

The Town of Brookhaven has developed an innovative planning tool that will not only redesign the government of the second largest town in the State and provide meaningful results to its constituents, but also provide a model and catalyst for government reinvention and best practices statewide. The Municipal Consolidation Efficiency Plan, aptly named Brookhaven United, was designed in collaboration with partners to reassess services, redesign government models, and redeploy service delivery protocols across municipal boundaries. The plan was awarded the sole $19.7 million MCEC grant in recognition of the visionary solutions and their potential to impact governments throughout the state. This session will review the key components of the Brookhaven United plan and discuss how they can be implemented in towns throughout New York State.

Speakers:
Matt Miner – Chief of Operations, Town of Brookhaven
Ben Syden, AICP – Vice President, Laberge Group
Nicole Allen, AICP – Planning Services Manager, Laberge Group 


Grant Writing Toolbox – How to Make My Grant Fundable!

Monday, Feb 18 | 11:30 a.m. ‐ 12:30 p.m.
Booth/Edison Room, 5th floor of the Times Square Marriott Marquis

My project was great – why wasn’t it funded? Are you trying to shoehorn a square peg into a round hole? Are your town leaders often perplexed as to why your community’s most pressing needs cannot secure funding? New York State communities will be used to highlight expert tips on grant writing, project development, and income survey documentation. Learn how to craft and mold winning projects and how to overcome common pitfalls to increase your chances of funding success!

Speakers:
Ben Syden, AICP – Vice President, Laberge Group
Nicole Allen, AICP – Planning Services Manager, Laberge Group
