EIP's key features.

• Use of covenants to assure Industrial Ecology is model for the development. • Adherence to Vision Statement. • Eco-Auditing system to evaluate performance.

What constitutes success?

• Park tenants • Jobs (500-2000) • Increase community's tax base • Positive Economic Impact as measured by independent study.

EIP linkages.

• Use of Covenants and Eco-Performance Standards • Design guidelines being developed • Active citizen participation processes • Use of Advisory Board Recruiting process.

• We have a committee developing a target industry strategy. This includes working with Businesses for Social Responsibility (BSR), local businesses and Realtors and an active multimedia promotion campaign. • Existing Anchor tenants who will promote the park to like-minded corporations. Resources available.

Town of Londonderry owns the land. Stonyfield Farms Inc. and Londonderry provide staff and seed money. Advisory Board includes EPA Region I, NH Charitable Foundation, MIT; NH Public Health; the Business Environment Network; UNH College of Life Science and Agriculture's Sustainable Living Core Group; the Nature Conservancy, Businesses Social Responsibility and Area Citizens.

Strategy to continue progressing. • Complete covenants and organizational structure • Public Hearing for Town Council to ratify above • Begin marketing What is missing? Model covenants, screening procedures for tenants, targeting, environmental performance standards all would be useful. Ownership models, lease, incubators, would all be useful.

Goals for the upcoming workshop. Input from colleagues and other model. Case Study Source: Eco-Industrial Park (EIP) Workshop, Cape Charles, Va., October 17-18, 1996;
