The Agency of Natural Resources’ ninth annual Municipal Day will take place on October 28, 2022. Municipal Day is an opportunity to inform and empower Vermont’s local officials and volunteers through workshops presented by state officials. From planning and zoning officials to town managers and selectboard members, participants will learn the most up-to-date information to apply in their daily work and the tools available to help their communities. While trainings are specifically tailored to municipal officials, any community member who wants to learn more about ANR’s work is invited to participate.
“This year’s Municipal Day will offer local officials insights in how state agencies are spending infrastructure funding, how to access state services to make their communities stronger and more resilient, and access to people eager to help. It’s a great one-stop shop for any community leader who wants to get to work,” said Vermont League of Cities & Towns Executive Director Ted Brady.
Workshop topics include federal funding opportunities, land use planning, environmental justice, navigating Act 250, noxious weed management, and much more. Workshops also provide useful information on current issues and the resources that are in place to help.
The full-day session costs $30, including morning coffee with pastries, lunch, and a welcome bag including complimentary State Park passes. Find the agenda, workshop descriptions, and a printable brochure to share with your colleagues on ANR’s Municipal Day web page.
Space is limited. Register online starting Thursday, September 15, 2022.
Municipal Day is sponsored by the Vermont Agency of Natural Resources in collaboration with Vermont Emergency Management, the Natural Resources Board, the Agency of Commerce and Community Development, and the Agency of Agriculture Food, and Markets.
