Roads and Water Quality Meeting

Thursday, February 15, 2024
6:30 pm – 8:00 pm

Zoom

The Chittenden County Regional Planning Commission and the Northwest Regional Planning Commission will co-host an online meeting concerning roads and water quality in the northern Lake Champlain basin on Thursday, February 15th at 6:30pm.

MEETING OBJECTIVE:
The objective of the meeting is to learn from community members how existing public and private resources might better support ‘water friendly’ road management. Part of the meeting will focus on collecting project ideas and creating a list of “areas of need.” Information gathered at the meeting will be offered to Vermont DEC for use in the update of the Tactical Basin Plan for the northern Lake Champlain basin.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND:
We especially want to hear from two groups: local road officials, and people associated with Homeowners Associations (HOAs).

HOW TO JOIN:
The meeting will be held on Thursday, February 15th at 6:30pm via Zoom. Please consider attending at least part of the session.

TAKE THE SURVEY:
In collaboration with partners, Vermont is updating the Northern Lake Champlain Direct Drainages Tactical Basin Plan, to be released at the end of 2024. This water quality and habitat management plan identifies rivers, lakes, and wetlands in need of restoration and protection. It also outlines actions to achieve water quality goals and identifies partners and funding critical to implementation. Contribute to the planning process by taking this survey! Your answers benefit the process by providing a more complete picture of the watershed and understanding of the community needs. More information and the survey link can be found here.
