Smart Growth Awards Celebrate People, Plans and Projects

A crisp fall evening on the banks of Lake Champlain was the perfect setting for the warmth and celebration of the 2009 Smart Growth Awards event. Close to 130 community members, town and state officials and representatives from our Congressional leadership gathered to honor the award winners.
Rob Woolmington of North Bennington graciously accepted the Arthur Gibb Award for Individual Leadership, recalling memories of how Art Gibb influenced his career.
Three projects and one plan also received awards and are star examples of how cities and villages can incorporate affordable homes, commercial space, and renovate for high energy efficiency while bringing historic Vermont structures back to life.
Thanks to all of our sponsors for making the awards event a success!
