Panoramaland RC&D

“Making Things Happen” is the motto and driving force behind the vision of the Panoramaland Resource Conservation and Development Council, the “RC&D”.  Developed in 1993, the RC&D is a non-profit public/private partnership developed to engage local leaders through collaborative projects to solve local problems, improve local conditions, and promote the local economy. Enabling the people of South Central Utah to plan, develop and improve its social, economic and environmental conditions is the RC&D mission.

The RC&D selects and sponsors worthy programs and projects meeting the R&CD’s vision and mission of forming community partnerships, engaging local citizens to improve, heighten, and support its well-being. Acting as a fiscal agent for projects the RC&D can provide administrative oversight, program direction, and technical support. In this make-it-happen style, the Council can gather input from the community to evaluate progress and improve and modify goals and objectives for the benefit of its citizens.

Through community involvement the RC&D and local leaders can interact with citizens to identify needs and develop and implement solutions together, making things happen. It is through participation that this collaborative community based approach is possible and successful. With that intent in mind, new partnerships can be formed with a common goal to solve local problems and improve local conditions.

It’s a model similar to conservation banking, in which landowners protect endangered species habitat on their own property and then sell credits to offset building elsewhere. The credit exchange goes further by acting as broker and removing the permitting delays and financial risk involved in setting up one’s own bank, making it easier for landowners to participate. Biologists and farm experts then consult landowners on how to manage both dogs and land, and Wightman inspects to ensure it’s done right. Their assistance helps landowners navigate the complex maze of regulations.

Another advantage of the credit exchange model is its landscape-scale approach to habitat protection, which targets parcels near existing habitat to help reconnect the prairie dog’s range. The goal is to go beyond the usual mitigation yardstick of “no net loss” of habitat by protecting more land and more dogs than are actually impacted by building. “This offers a mitigation approach that we think is more efficient, more effective, and gets more conservation per dollar than any other option,” says Toombs.
