Join local officials, planners, business and property owners, statewide leaders, and more at the Designation 2050 Design Summit. Hear Designation Program Evaluation findings and help design the future of these programs – and Vermont.

This fast-paced, interactive event will be held on Tuesday, September 12 at the Randolph Campus of Vermont State University. Join us for a morning of moving from Vision to Action. Hear the early program evaluation findings and draft vision and goals. Join Deep Dive discussions and help strategies for ensuring that the next round of Designation Programs become powerful tools for addressing key issues like climate resilience, housing access and affordability, equity and opportunity and more.

Stay for lunch and dig into an afternoon of Program Design & Reform. Hear case studies from other states and preliminary recommendations from the project team. Join more “deep dive” breakout sessions and roll up your sleeves to help prioritize ideas and design the next iteration of these powerful community revitalization programs.
