Prioritizing Health in the Built Environment

2.9 MB
Year:
2020
Theme:
Health, Land Use
Description:
Health starts where we live, learn, work and play. Cultural norms related to the use, access to, and promotion of alcohol, tobacco, and cannabis products influence the rate and frequency of use in communities, particularly for youth. When community leaders prioritize health over other interests’, policies are enacted which enable healthy choices and behaviors and these choices become commonplace among youth. For example, a community that has adopted policies to limit where alcohol is sold, research states that communities see less underage drinking, less crime and a reduction in law enforcement costs.

Multi-Unit Dwelling Electric Vehicle Charging

1.5 MB
Year:
2020
Theme:
Electric Vehicles
Description:
Multi-unit dwelling (MUD) residents in apartments and condominiums often have more challenges in gaining access to home EV charging due to parking issues and cost. Renters in MUDs have additional barriers to long-term investments in charging infrastructure for shorter-term housing. Approximately 36% of Chittenden County housing units are in MUD communities and of those 86% are rental units, so overcoming these barriers is critical to meeting energy and equity goals.  VEIC worked with CCRPC and Drive Electric Vermont stakeholders to develop a survey to gauge MUD property owners’ interest in EV charging infrastructure and better what resources and assistance may be most helpful in supporting them. This report concludes with several recommendations for resources, outreach and education to address barriers and empower MUD owners and residents to move forward with EV infrastructure plans.
