A conversation about planning that achieves the results desired by the community. We introduce the updated Vermont Planning Manual and discuss ways to create an inclusive process and a plan that meets statutory requirements while providing the town with clear and strategic direction. The webinar took place on February 15, 2017. Contact your local Regional Planning Commission for information about follow up events.
Act 157 directed the Agency to develop recommendations to fill the gap in our housing and infrastructure needs. Over the summer and fall, the Steering Committee and staff reviewed existing programs and statutes, gathered stakeholder input and evaluated the housing and infrastructure needs throughout Vermont.
Vermonters are known for their attitudes and practices in environmental stewardship. The Brownfields Initiative is an example of this commitment. The initiative combines the economic development expertise of the Agency of Commerce and Community Development (ACCD) with the environmental experience and technical know-how of the Agency of Natural Resources (ANR).
