Rutland – Vermont Outdoor Recreation Economy Collaborative public meeting

October 3, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

In June, Governor Scott launched the Vermont Outdoor Recreation Economic Collaborative (VOREC) to engage stakeholders in a public conversation about recreation, the Vermont economy, and stewardship of our natural resources.

Now, VOREC is looking to hear from you! They are hosting a series of public meetings throughout Vermont and we hope you’ll join us on Tuesday, Oct. 3 at 6:00 p.m. at Community College of Vermont (60 West St.) for the Rutland area public meeting.

It is important that this Collaborative hear from Vermonters like you about the importance of investing in our communities, protecting our forests, water, and climate, and strengthening outdoor recreation economy:

  • Healthy and intact forestlands are vital to maintaining quality recreational opportunities and our outdoor tourism economy.
  • Safeguard our natural resources and infrastructure through strategic conservation of more public and private land that is fundamental to Vermont’s economic vitality.
  • Permanently protect local, regional, and statewide trail networks to give communities, organizations, and volunteers the security to invest time and money into their stewardship.
  • Make a greater investment of public and private dollars to the stewardship of our public lands and trail networks.
  • Make sure all Vermonters have safe, local access to recreational opportunities and open space.
  • Vermont’s economy benefits from our shared love of the outdoors, but climate change threatens the future of Vermont’s outdoor recreation economy. Vermont needs to take substantive action on climate to support our tourism economy and protect investments already made in recreation facilities.
  • Many of our Vermont communities are dependent upon thriving local recreation economies. This means making sure there are places that are permanently around for people to bike, hike, bird watch, and more.

Please RSVP and let us know you plan to attend. We look forward to seeing you there!
