This blog has the dual purpose of training our clinicians to write in plain English and providing accessible summaries of key Vermont land use decisions for volunteers and land use professionals.
In Vermont, most land use decisions are made by volunteers, frequently without staff support. In 2010, we conducted a survey of zoning administrators, development review board members, planning commissioners, applicants and concerned citizens. We wondered if a blog written by law students could be helpful to these folks? The survey results indicated an interest and need for plain English summaries of key municipal land use and state permitting decisions.
We hope to update the blog weekly to summarize important developments in Vermont land use law.
Let us know if you have any suggestions!
