Nominate a Project for the 2009 Smart Growth Awards

We are pleased to begin accepting nominations for our 2009 Smart Growth Awards. This biannual awards program honors projects, initiatives, and plans anywhere in the state of Vermont that demonstrate smart growth principles in action. “Smart growth” refers to an approach to land use that revitalizes neighborhoods, protects farmland and open space, keeps housing affordable, and provides more transportation choices. Please visit our Smart Growth Awards page for more information and to learn about past recipients.
We are also accepting nominations for the Arthur Gibb Award for Individual Leadership. Named in honor of long-time legislator and conservation leader Arthur Gibb of Weybridge, this annual award honors an individual whose leadership has brought about a positive and lasting change in the way their community or the state integrates growth and conservation. Please visit the Arthur Gibb Award page for more information and to learn about past recipients.
Nominations for both awards are due April 30, 2009. For assistance, contact our Program Director, Jason Van Driesche.
