Act 250 Commission Hosting Public Forums
The Commission on Act 250: The Next 50 Years
The Vermont Legislative Commission on Act 250 is seeking public input through a series of forums and social media outreach to envision Vermont’s future landscape. Representative Amy Sheldon of Addison County is Chair of the Commission on Act 250. Future forums will be held in:
- July 25: Randolph - (VT Law School)
- September 5: Rutland - (Franklin Conference Center)
- September 12: Burlington - (Burlington Elks Lodge)
All forums are on Wednesday evenings from 6:00-8:00 PM.
Unlike typical town hall style forums, this one is designed to invite conversation and engage citizens in small group discussions with facilitators. After a brief presentation highlighting the key points of Act 250, community members will have a chance to talk about what matters most to them. The public input will inform the Legislative Commission’s report and any potential legislation to modernize the statutes. Act 250 grew out of citizen involvement fifty years ago and it will be strengthened through citizen involvement now. A survey will be launched in July to gather more input. All materials will be made accessible to the public.
