Working with local, regional and state-wide organizations, ACCD has developed an online form to ensure consistent and collaborative collection of damages to businesses, agriculture, historic and cultural resources in the event of a major regional or state-wide event.
If you are viewing this page, there is no disaster pending. However, now is the time to prepare to ensure that all is ready in case of an emergency.
One lesson learned after Tropical Storm Irene was that the State and our partners in disaster response and recovery needed a consistent way to assess damage and impact to businesses, farms and cultural and historic resources and a centralized location for the information. Such a system would allow for a more collaborative and strategic response and the ability to communicate with those impacted as new assistance programs became available. It would allow us to pinpoint the types of assistance that was needed and ensure that all those impacted were offered support.
The Department of Housing and Community Development presents the Downtown and Historic Preservation Conference on Thursday, June 8, 2017 at the Barrette Center for the Arts in White River Junction. The event is made possible by a partnership with Northern Stage, Preservation Trust of Vermont, and the Town of Hartford. The conference will highlight White River Junction's successful revival by bringing new housing, businesses, and jobs downtown.
Vermonters and visitors alike care about our historic resources. Volunteers, craftspeople, businesses, organizations, and agencies work to identify, restore, preserve, and utilize these resources. All are essential partners in Vermont’s preservation movement.
Strengthening local preservation programs, the Certified Local Government (CLG) program encourages the direct participation of local governments in the identification, evaluation, registration, and preservation of historic properties within their jurisdictions. It promotes the integration of local preservation interests and concerns into local planning and decision-making processes.
Vermont's historic resources include buildings, structures, landscapes, and archaeological sites, both on land and underwater. If you want to know the historic status of your property or learn about the history of your community, please use our Online Resource Center.
