Ever wonder what the future of Butler County will be like?
It could be a bright one where small farms and food processors, as well as tourists, drive the county economy.
Or it could be a gloomy, soggy one where increased rainfall caused by climate change leaves a polluted and infectious landscape in its wake.
That's the issue that will be tackled next weekend during a symposium of residents, local leaders and nonprofit organizations.
Re-Imagine Butler County will gather people and groups together to envision both an environmentally and economically sustainable future for the county.
It will be staged from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Sept. 29 in Founders Hall on Butler County Community College's main campus, 107 College Drive, Butler Township.
Lou Hancherick of Marcellus Outreach Butler said his group, along with the Butler County Tourism and Convention Bureau and the League of Women Voters of Pennsylvania, are the organizers of the event.
