The Lamoille County Regional Plan is a policy and reference guide developed by and for the Lamoille County Planning Commission (LCPC) to address issues of common concern among the municipalities of the region. As a regional planning commission, LCPC is required to prepare a regional plan every eight years by soliciting input from member municipalities, regional organizations, and the general public. This inclusive and comprehensive process is one of the most significant functions that we perform.
This plan is used to:
- Reflect overall growth trends within the region and address issues of concern at the local and regional level
- Support the goals and issues of the region's communities as expressed in their municipal plans
- Serve as a guiding document for the Lamoille County Planning Commission Board of Directors to direct ongoing activities and develop new initiatives to serve the region and its communities
- Provide a basis to evaluate and review development projects proposed under 10 VSA Chapter 151: State Land Use and Development Plans (Act 250) and 30 VSA §248 (Public Service Board)
- Serve where needed to determine compatibility of state and federal agency plans affecting land use with regional and local planning and development priorities
- Provide information and regional concerns for municipal planning endeavors
The 2015 - 2023 Lamoille County Regional Plan was adopted by the Lamoille County Planning Commission Board of Directors on Tuesday, November 24, 2015. As per 24 VSA section 4348(f), the plan is considered effective 35 days after adoption (December 30, 2015). Please contact LCPC if you have any questions about the Regional Plan, 802-888-4548.
