Four communities in the Mount Ascutney region are working to modernize their zoning bylaws.  The Vermont Department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD) has funding for municipalities through the Bylaw Modernization Grant Program for land use bylaw updates in support of a pedestrian-oriented development pattern that increase housing choice, affordability, and opportunity in areas planned in accordance with Vermont’s smart growth principles (24 V.S.A. §2791). This funding is intended to help municipalities confront the State’s housing shortage and ready areas for new housing investments.
