Volunteers and interns are crucial to the success of Smart Growth Vermont and we are fortunate to have an energetic group of individuals assisting with several of our projects. In the coming months, we will showcase these wonderful individuals.
Mariana Du Brul came to us last September interested in learning more about environmental and political issues in Vermont. She brought with her a knowledge of GIS (Geographic Information Systems, or computer-based mapping) that has proven extremely useful in our community work. Mariana also brought her passion for Vermont’s traditional landscapes and a care and attention to detail for every project she undertakes.
By volunteering her time and skills, Mariana has helped save Danville hundreds of dollars by developing maps of proposed zoning districts in and around Danville Village to help the Planning Commission envision how village-specific zoning standards can work in their community. She is now working on a map of Warren Village’s core commercial area as part of the town’s application for state Village Center designation. Thank you, Mariana!
