2010 Boot Camp A Success

Ohana Camp on Lake Fairlee was once again the setting for a successful summer retreat put on by the Vermont Law School’s Land Use Institute for Planning Commissioners and Development Review Board members.

Over twenty people came to learn about tools to protect land use, ethics, collaborative decision making and moving forward after the JAM Golf decision. Smart Growth Vermont sponsored two participants and participated in a panel on “Getting Smart Growth to Happen.”

Thanks to key sponsors Bob Miller, R.E.M. Development, and the Center for Rural Studies, and many others for making this weekend possible. As one participant said, “It was a great experience…rejuvenating, informative and fun.”
