VNRC Awards 3 New Small Grants for Smart Growth

VNRC is pleased to announce the recent awards of Small Grants for Smart Growth to the Town of Hinesburg, the South Hero Land Trust, and Canaan Naturally Connected.

The Town of Hinesburg will use its grant to hold a community design charrette that will inform the creation of a conceptual improvement plan for a town common in the Village of Hinesburg. 

The South Hero Land Trust will use its grant for continued coordination of a community trail network, building off a project begun with the aid of a Small Grant in 2018. This stage of the project will include designing and producing outreach materials and hosting community trails meetings.

Canaan Naturally Connected will use its grant to collect public input about usage of the Canaan Community forest in the Northeast Kingdom. This will include determining how to enhance connectivity between the forest and nearby towns.

Stay tuned for updates on these projects and learn more here about Small Grants for Smart Growth.
