2008 Legislative Session Ends; Bills on Housing, Tax Credits and Current Use Passed
The 2007-2008 Legislative Session has ended, and Smart Growth Vermont successfully advocated for bills that encourage housing in smart growth locations, and update and streamline the Current Use Program. We would like to thank Paul Bruhn and the Preservation Trust of Vermont for taking the lead on increasing downtown tax credits this year by $150,000. We would also like to extend our thanks to lawmakers who recognized the importance of smart growth investments in this tight budget year. For more details, view our 2008 Legislative Session Wrap-Up.
