New Map Features Designated Downtowns and Village Centers

Smart Growth Vermont has a history of advocating for the health of downtowns and village centers. From our state policy work to highlighting communities in our e-newsletter, we believe healthy downtown and village centers are necessary if the landscape we love is to continue in the future. Our latest contribution is the creation of an online map which features all of the designated downtowns and village centers, links to their downtown associations and any community spotlights featured in past e-newsletters. The goal of the map is to promote our community centers, as well as the the Downtown Program and to provide information on the activities and accomplishments of these communities. We hope you find this resource useful, and be sure to check out our Community Spotlights for more in-depth information on some of Vermont’s lively downtowns.
