Find out what has been done and the outcomes.

The Chittenden County Regional Planning Commission is the primary agency providing the staff support for this endeavor. The project represents a once in a generation opportunity for the Chittenden County region to address long-term sustainability by developing a vision, goals and strategies that promote appropriate governance and development while ensuring social equity for the region’s population.

The results of the effort will be used in updating the Burlington Legacy Plan, the County’s Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy (CEDS), the Chittenden County Metropolitan Transportation Plan and the Chittenden County Regional Plan. This initial meeting will introduce the project Steering Committee, review the partnership agreement and project work plan including proposed public engagement activities.
