Congratulations UVM Transportation Center
While Smart Growth Vermont was not one of the four organizations that received a $200,000 grant from the recent Green Mountain Coffee Roasters Climate Change grant round, our partner in our research and implementation initiative, the UVM Transportation Research Center, was. Their proposal, submitted in partnership with the New England Transportation Institute, was awarded to conduct an in-depth analysis of transportation patterns in the rural Northeast to help inform policy-makers on the likely adoption and ultimate effect of different transportation strategies on greenhouse gas emissions levels.
We expect their work will be very beneficial to Smart Growth Vermont as we move forward with our research and implementation project to demonstrate the link between land use, transportation, climate change and energy efficiency. Thanks again to all our supporters who voted for our project and made great comments. We look forward to securing the funding to get our initiative started.
