The Two Rivers-Ottauquechee Regional Plan is a policy statement on growth and development of the Region. Its purpose is to give guidance to developers, municipalities and other political subdivisions in the Region, and the State of Vermont on appropriate development, improvement and conservation of the Region's physical and human resources.
This Plan is an expression of values and a vision for growth and management for the next five years. It is not to be a static or inflexible document. The Regional Commission, with the involvement and participation of the public, will periodically review and update this Plan to reflect new conditions and needs.
Adoption of the Plan does not change the structure or role of local or State government. The Plan intends to strengthen local government by providing information and guidance on growth management. It seeks to facilitate cooperation among these governments. Adoption of this Plan means that the Regional Commission commits its staff and program resources to achieving the Region's goals and to fulfilling the Plan's program recommendations. Adoption of this Plan documents the support of the Region's towns for the principles contained within its chapters.
This Plan was adopted June 27, 2012 and is effective July 27, 2012. It replaces the Two Rivers-Ottauquechee Regional Plan effective July 4, 2007. Much of the background information goals, policies, and recommendations contained in this Plan are based upon the work reflected in the earlier version of the Plan.
