Vermont’s Current Use Program

Print More

In 1978, Vermont
legislators created the Use Value Appraisal Program, designed to help preserve
undeveloped land and to create greater equity in property taxes. Thirty years later, 65% of the state’s
agricultural land is enrolled. This coming session, the legislature is set to
re-examine the program based on recommendations from a task force. We look at how well the program has worked
for Vermont, and how it could
possibly change.

Also, Burlington Free Press reporter Candy Page shares what
she learned at a recent conference on lake pollution. And, Circus Smirkus founder, Rob Mermin
remembers when Marcel Marceau performed in Vermont.
