Chapter 117 2011 Amendments – Workshop


The 2011 Provisions of Chapter 117: What Do They Mean to Your Town?

Wednesday, December 16, 2009
5:30 -7:00 PM
(A light meal will be provided.)
CVRPC Offices, 29 Main Street Montpelier, VT

Did you know that the 2004 legislative amendments to the Vermont Municipal and Regional Planning and Development Act (aka Chapter 117) contained many provisions that do not take effect until 2011? Do you know what they are and how to respond to them? Do you know which are mandatory and which are optional? If not, please join us for a workshop to explore this important topic. CVRPC staff will present a power point presentation covering:

• An overview of Chapter 117
• The intent of the 2004 changes (Act 115)
• A review of those sections of law that took effect in 2005
• A detailed look at the 2011 provisions

We will also have time for questions, discussion, and sharing local experiences regarding responding to the law’s various mandates and enabling clauses. This workshop is geared for town officials, review boards, zoning administrators and anyone interested in how Vermont’s planning statute works. (Note: Zoning Administrators should be aware that this will be a similar, albeit more “leisurely,” presentation to the one given at the ZA Roundtable meeting in June 2009.)

There is no fee for this workshop; however, pre-registration is requested as space is limited to approximately 20 people. Please contact Chris Walsh at 229-0389 or for more information or to reserve a spot. CVRPC’s offices are located adjacent to Montpelier City Hall on the second floor of the Rite–Aid Pharmacy building.
