 Moving Toward Sustainability, Where We Live & How

This is a predominantly HUD funded opportunity to create a Sustainable Community Regional Plan that is focused on economic competitiveness, housing, transportation, climate resilience, energy, habitat, health and society in the East Central Vermont 40-town region.

We need you in this conversation!

The East Central Vermont: What We Want project needs your input, as we carefully examine existing plans, and figure out how our region will act and plan to get the future we all want. You can join us on-line, come to meetings or both. Be involved as much or as little as you like, but let us hear from you!  Meetings (which are always open to the public) and project information are posted throughout this site or please feel free to contact us at 802-457-3188.
