Public Hearing Notice - The Second of Two Public Hearings on the Readoption of the Rutland Regional Plan

The Rutland Regional Planning Commission has updated the Rutland Regional Plan in accordance with
24 VSA § 4348 and §4302. The RRPC is amending the regional plan with an updated natural resources
map in accordance with Act 171, and with an updated energy section in compliance with the enhanced
energy planning requirements set forth by the Public Utility Commission. This update includes energy
maps. The RRPC conducted extensive public outreach in the development of these updates, especially in
the development of the maps.

The Rutland Region future land use map did not change in this iteration, but the RRPC will be reviewing
and revising the Regional Plan’s future land use map, land use chapter, and the implementation plan in
the coming months. The RRPC will be amending the land use element to reflect new development
pressures. The amendment will ensure the plan’s language preserves the village center surrounded by
rural working lands character of Vermont in light of these new development pressures.
