Smart Growth Awards Nominations Due April 30!

Vermont has never been the kind of place that does things just like everywhere else. That is why smart growth is such a good fit for our state. Smart growth is all about making sure that, as Vermont changes, it stays Vermont.

The Smart Growth Awards honor development projects, municipal plans, and conservation initiatives that demonstrate smart growth principles in action. Are you building a new neighborhood that will provide homes for working families within easy walking distance of schools, shops, and jobs? Has your community just finished a rewrite of its town plan that makes a commitment to promoting new business development in your downtown? Do you know of a group that is spearheading a conservation initiative to link protection of working rural lands with development in and around village centers?

Nominate them for a Smart Growth Award today! Nominations must be postmarked by April 30, 2009.

Please contact Jason Van Driesche, Program Director, at 864-6310 or at jason@smartgrowthvermont.org with any questions about either award.
