New Town Centers

New Town Center photoFor municipalities that lack a historic downtown, Vermont statute 24 V.S.A § 2793b provides the option of designating a New Town Center. Designation requirements focus on planning, capital expenditures, and regulatory tools that promote a pedestrian-oriented development pattern similar to our historic downtowns. 

Designated New Town Centers
The following towns have applied for and received designation.

  • Colchester – July 2007, Renewed December 2014
