Neighborhood & Housing Revitalization Study
As a follow up to the 2012 housing needs assessment the RRA is again working with I Squared Community Development Consulting, Inc. on a second phase of neighborhood and housing revitalization planning. Funding for the project was provided by a municipal planning grant awarded by the Vermont Department of Economic, Housing, and Community Development.
The Neighborhood and Housing Revitalization Study will take initial revitalization recommendations found in the housing needs assessment a step further. The outcome will be a systematic strategy dealing with individual vacant properties as well as more general strategies focused on improving image, housing markets, and quality of life, within the targeted revitalization area.
This second phase of planning is expected to be completed in early 2014 and will lead to a grant application to the Vermont Community Development Program for implementation funding.
