Smart Growth Vermont Provides Training in Chester

By invitation of the Chester Planning Commission, Smart Growth Vermont gave a presentation on July 7 to interested Planning Commissioners, Select Board members and local residents. The presentation focused on the smart growth options and tools available to the town’s residents as they consider where, what and how they want to enhance their community’s character and vitality in the years to come. The presentation was the first in a series of events put on by the town in preparation for an update to their town plan.
“Trainings are a great way for communities to learn more about a specific conservation and growth-related issue,” said Noelle MacKay, Smart Growth Vermont’s Executive Director. “We tailor presentations to the specific needs and interests of a community, with the goal of giving residents the tools they need to create the kind of future they want for their town.”
Anyone interested in arranging a training for their town can contact Jason Van Driesche, Smart Growth Vermont’s program director, at jason@smartgrowthvermont.org or at 864-6310.
