People are the catalyst for change. Smart Growth Vermont recognizes this by each year celebrating an individual for his or her community leadership in putting smart growth principles into action with the Arthur Gibb Award for Individual Leadership. Nominations are now open.
This prestigious award honors an individual whose leadership has brought about a positive and lasting change in the way their community integrates growth with conservation. Widely considered the father of Act 250 and the prime force behind the state’s billboard law, Arthur Gibb was Chair of the Environmental Board and a state senator from Addison County. He passed away in 2005 at the age of 97.
