One community in Vermont and two in Maine will receive technical assistance to pursue sustainable growth from the EPA.
Brattleboro, along with Brunswick and Portland in Maine, are among 43 communities in 27 states chosen to receive the assistance through the EPA’s Blocks for Sustainable Communities program.
This program encourages local economic development while safeguarding people’s health and the environment.
EPA staff and national experts will conduct one- or two-day workshops focusing on a specific sustainability goal in each community.
Some of the tools offered this year included projects called a Green Building Toolkit, Land Use Strategies to Protect Water Quality, and Using Smart Growth to Produce Economic and Fiscal Health.
