Keys to the Valley June Newsletter

The Keys to the Valley Initiative is a collaboration between the Upper Valley Lake Sunapee Regional Planning Commission, Two Rivers-Ottauquechee Regional Commission, and Southern Windsor County Regional Planning Commission (Tri-Commissions). The project seeks to better understand the need for homes in our 67-town region and to find solutions to the housing challenges that our communities and residents face.   

Following the completion of their recent public opinion survey, Keys to the Valley has released their June newsletter highlighting various aspects of housing in our region, including creative housing options, senior housing and the incorporation of transportation into housing. The newsletter can be found here.

Correction to June Newsletter

In our recent newsletter there was an error in the 2020 Construction Projects section under VT 131 in Cavendish and Weathersfield [ER STP 0146(14)]. It should read “Work is ongoing to rehabilitate VT Route 131 between VT Route
103 in Proctorsville and VT Route 106 at Downer’s Corners in Weathersfield.” Originally the locations of the routes were switched and incorrect. The corrected newsletter can be found here.

SWCRPC Receives Community-wide Brownfields Assessment Grant from U.S. Environmental Protection Agency

The Southern Windsor County Regional Planning Commission (SWCRPC) is the proud recipient of a $300,000 Community-wide Brownfields Assessment Grant from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. As one of only two FY2020 recipients in Vermont, this funding will provide a substantial boost in our ability to offer much needed assessment of Brownfield sites in our region.  The SWCRPC has several active sites right now that have captured the interest of private developers, local non-profits and municipalities for cleanup and reuse.
