The Northwest Vermont Project, which began in 2003, has been a collaborative effort to study growth and development in northwestern Vermont as it relates to the region’s transportation infrastructure. The over arching goals of the project were:
- To project future growth at the local level using state-of-the-art growth modeling tools;
- To assess municipalities’ abilities to manage growth now and in the future;
- To develop model tools and strategies to be used by municipalities to plan for future growth in a manner that reflects local land use and transportation goals.
