East Central Vermont (ECV) Consortium Outreach Plan

Several of the towns in our region have already signed up as Consortium members and, as this is a public process, we are attempting to put out the word that involvement is desired. Several draft documents and information about working groups is available at http://ecvermont.org/news/ Please contact Dan Potter at firstname.lastname@example.org for additional information.
New Neighborhood Development Area Designations
The Agency of Commerce and Community Development (ACCD) has just introduced a new community designation. The Neighborhood Development Area designation encourages municipalities and/or developers to plan for new and infill housing in the area within walking distance of its designated downtown, village center, new tow center, or within its designated growth center and incentivizes needed housing, further supporting the commercial establishments in the designated centers.
