Description

The ECOS Project is both a process and a plan for managing sustainable growth in Chittenden County. By working across sectors -- water, food, energy, education, housing, transportation, health, social connectedness and economic development -- we are able to see the interconnectedness of our challenges and solve them together. The ECOS Project is a unique opportunity for municipalities, organizations, businesses and residents to work together to preserve and improve our quality of life. The result will be an integrated regional plan, that will prepare the county for a sustainable future. more information at www.ecosproject.com
