SerVermont - Central Vermont Regional Planning
As one of 11 regional planning commissions in Vermont, CVRPC strengthens the capability of local government. We also work cooperatively with local governments to address regional issues. Through a combination of environmental and economic planning strategies, we foster a community environment that provides for the needs of both residents and our natural surroundings, today and for generations to come. We act as “connectors” to move ideas to action. Working with towns, cities, non-profit organizations, and state agencies, we strengthen public policy and cultivate actions that increase food access, provide affordable housing opportunities, increase social connectedness, support community health, increase public transit ridership, support walkable communities, and foster development and maintenance of public infrastructure.
