In October 2010, CCRPC was awarded a Sustainable Communities Regional Planning Grant from the Partnership of Sustainable Communities (US Departments of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), Transportation (DOT), and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). One of the major deliverables of the grant is an updated and enhanced Chittenden County Regional Plan. With these new resources, The Plan will be enhanced and improved to address economic development, housing choice and affordability, energy and climate change impacts, healthy communities and food systems. The enhanced Plan will involve a greater focus on sustainable development performance measures and outcomes and active engagement with many important regional and local partners to identify and implement strategies to improve Chittenden County’s long-term sustainability. CCRPC will consider the Regional Plan for adoption in Spring 2013.
