About the event

Register!

From walkable streets to affordable housing, climate resilience to historic preservation, Vermont communities have big goals for local change. Our state downtown, village center, and other designation programs are designed to help, but how well are they working? Join us for a lively discussion of the local perspective on our designation programs.

  • How well are the Vermont State Designation Programs helping local towns, villages, cities and regions to achieve their goals and make projects happen?
  • What’s easy and clear about applying or managing designations? Where are the pain points?
  • How well do they align with local, regional, and state goals, plans, maps and policies?
  • What do municipalities and regions most want to accomplish in the next 25 years, and how could we redesign the designation programs to help?

Join Designation 2050, the Vermont Planners Association (VPA), and Vermont Association of Planning and Development Agencies (VAPDA)  for a virtual conversation. We’ll  explore the local perspective on how Vermont’s designation programs are working now, and what we imagine for the future.
