The Southern Vermont Housing Summit is part of the Economic Development for Town Leaders series. Past sessions include information and discussion on zoning and connectivity. These topics have been highlighted by Southern Vermont town leaders as ones in which they would like to learn more about and how they play a role in economic and workforce development for their towns. The Southern Vermont Housing Summit’s purpose is to bring town officials and municipal leaders together to learn more about how to promote and support public and private housing initiatives within their town.
