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.

Essex Land Use Regulation Housing Audit

1.5 MB
Year:
2018
Theme:
Housing, Land Use, Municipal Planning
Description:
This report includes a variety of recommendations for the Town of Essex Zoning Regulations to eliminate barriers to affordable housing. Some of these recommendations are broad in scope while others are simple housekeeping changes. The broader recommendations go beyond a text edit in the zoning regulations and, while complex, may produce a more beneficial result than the minor housekeeping recommendations. The broader recommendations should be considered within the context of a housing needs assessment, and perhaps by a housing committee if and when established. This report should also help as a guide when implementing changes from the Town Center visioning work.

CCRPC staff worked with Town staff to evaluate multiple transportation alternatives in order to improve capacity at the Bayside Park intersection.

The purpose of the land use analysis was to determine the amount of development (in terms of new dwelling units and commercial floor area) that could occur given the increased capacity and additional trips that could be accommodated through the Bayside Park intersection as a result of the transportation improvements. This memo also estimates tax revenue associated with the additional development for Alternative 3B.

ECOS Plan Review: Regional Plan Assessments

5.6 MB
Year:
2013
Theme:
Economic/Finance, Environment, Land Use
Description:
The Vermont Association of Planning and Development Agencies (VAPDA) requested this outside assessment of the 11 regional plans. This project is a continuation of VAPDA’s efforts to evaluate and improve upon the effectiveness of regional planning initiated by the 2010 Challenges for Change. In 2011, VAPDA hired the National Association of Development Organizations (NADO) to conduct a statewide strategic assessment to evaluate the capacity and potential of the RPCs to serve as a resource for state government and their communities. One of the findings of the NADO report identified a need to “establish a higher level of consistency and performance across the entire statewide network of RPCs.”  This assessment is intended to examine the consistency, completeness and effectiveness of the regional plans in regard to meeting statutory requirements, implementing the state’s planning goals, and fulfilling their prescribed roles.
