MODERNIZING ACT 250 & LAND USE PLANNING

Complex challenges require bold strategic solutions. To meet the need for 80,000 new units of housing by 2035, it will require a coordinated approach and bold strategic solutions to bolster efforts that are already underway.

Collectively, our state land use regulations and programs must be modernized to reflect the needs of Vermonters today and in the next 20 years. We can protect our highly sensitive natural resources while also reforming permitting and Act 250 to allow for growth. Exemptions, more predictable and consistent processes, and redesigning state designation programs will support and incentivize resilient smart growth in larger geographic areas.
