The Chittenden County Regional Planning Commission (CCRPC) invites you to attend the first public meeting of the Lafountain Street and Dion Street Scoping Study (Study). The purpose of the Study is to investigate potential street reconfigurations along Lafountain Street and Dion Street, spanning from Main Street to East Allen Street, based on public feedback. The public is encouraged to participate in all phases of the Study, starting with the Local Concerns Meeting. The goal of the Local Concerns Meeting is to gather input on local concerns, transportation needs, and ideas to develop alternative solutions. This is an excellent opportunity to share your concerns and suggestions to enhance the corridor.
The Local Concerns Meeting will include a short presentation that outlines the Study’s purpose and current conditions, followed by a brainstorming and strategizing session to engage the community. We invite you to participate in this meeting and share your ideas and concerns to create a better future for the corridor.
