Posted on 02/23/2017 by VLCT Communications


The Vermont Agency of Natural Resources is hosting a listening tour to hear from its “customers” about their experiences interacting with the agency. Business owners, planners, real estate agents and others with regular business before the Agency are invited to attend one of remaining public forums at regional economic development commissions. Feedback gathered during the tour will be used to identify opportunities to improve the agency’s delivery of effective and consistent services.


The Agency of Natural Resources oversees permitting processes for state and federally-delegated programs that maintain clean air, water, and soils as well as healthy forests and ecosystems. The Secretary wants to hear about opportunities to further improve the Agency’s current permitting and regulatory systems to deliver better, more efficient business and organizational outcomes while protecting Vermont’s natural resources.
