Smart Growth and 350Vt Testimony at Putney Housing Committee

At The December meeting of Putney Affordable Housing Advisory Committee, Dr. Becky Jones and other local members of 350Vt testified their support of the proposed WWHT project. There have been some questions in the community about environmental impacts. These questions are asked and answered within the Zoom meeting found the link below.
The Meeting also contains testimony from State Planner, Jacob Hemmerick, who presents on the details of Vermonts, “Smart Growth”, policies.
Smart growth is a pattern of land development that creates compact, walkable, transit-accessible communities with a range of affordable housing opportunities and choices. In Vermont, it builds on and maintains the state’s historic settlement pattern of higher-density downtown and village centers surrounded by farm, forest, and natural areas.
