LEAM training is Tuesday night

University of Illinois Extension will provide computer training to Fayette County on the Land use Evolution and impact Assessment Model (LEAM) project.

This training is the next step in the LEAM planning/design project focused on the future land uses and developments throughout the South Central Illinois Region, including Clay, Effingham, Fayette, Jasper and Marion counties.

The agenda for the training will include an introduction to the LEAM project, the basics of navigating the LEAM web site.

Additionally, an introduction to ArcExplorer, a free software application that can be used to view the native LEAM project data, along with hands-on exercises, will be offered.

Anyone with an interest in the future of Fayette County’s land use and its development for the future is encouraged to attend.

The training will be held from 6:30 to 9 p.m. next Tuesday at the Kaskaskia College Vandalia Campus, 2310 W. Fillmore St., Vandalia.

Because a limited number of computers are available, registration is required and space will be limited. To pre-register or for more information, call the Fayette County Extension Office at 283-2753 by this Friday.
