The Community Planning Toolbox was developed by Smart Growth Vermont, which merged with VNRC on July 1, 2011.  Since that time, the toolbox has been maintained and updated by VNRC.   We thank the project partners, municipal officials, organizations, private developers, consultants and dedicated citizens who contributed to the Toolbox. Special thanks to the students and staff of a key partner – the Vermont Law School’s Land Use Institute and Land Use Clinic. We are especially grateful to foundations who have supported the Toolbox’s development and implementation: the Argosy Foundation, People’s United Bank, the Davis Conservation Foundation, the Lintilhac Foundation, the Maverick Lloyd Foundation, the Vermont Community Foundation, TD Bank and the Windham Foundation.
