September 5 & September 12, 2018 - Act 250 Forums

September 5 & September 12, 2018
Locations listed below

The Legislative Commission on Act 250  is holding public forums across Vermont to discuss the evolution of the state’s landmark legislation. Since Act 250 became effective in June 1970, this law has regulated development to protect Vermont's environment and preserve its landscape. The Commission has held four forums to date and has two more underway to engage Vermonters on their priorities for the future of the landscape and how to maintain its environment and sense of place. Upcoming events will be held in Island Pond, Rutland, and Burlington. Representatives and Senators from the Commission will be present at all forums and a report of findings will be made available after the public engagement initiatives have ended. Each forum is designed to generate rich dialogue to capture input of attendees. Please join in one of the sessions and share your thoughts. Remember that land use has a dramatic influence on water quality. All of the feedback received will be considered in preparing the Commission’s report and any recommended legislation.

All questions on the public engagement forum should be directed to Cope and Associates, Inc. (802) 951-4200.
