Smart Growth Vermont Begins Work in Legislature

As the legislative sessions begins, Smart Growth Vermont is already hard at work on a number of critical land use issues. One of the most important is increasing the tax credits available for redeveloping and upgrading building facades and making code improvements in historic community centers. Please sign on to our letter in support of an increase in the tax credits to indicate the strong public support for this cost-effective program that provides many benefits for Vermont’s downtowns. We are also working on initiatives to address the affordable housing shortage and evaluate the “Current Use” program. Visit our State Policy Page to learn more about these issues.
