Study: Bright future for Vermont


In 20 years, Vermont will be more affordable, more energy self-sufficient, have better public transportation and will offer more economic opportunity.

At least that's the vision set out in a new report on the state's future. After 18 months of gathering input from nearly 4,000 Vermonters, the Council on the Future of Vermont presented its findings Monday, marking the "midway point" of the study.

The report's conclusions are divided into six categories: the Vermont community; the Vermont economy; youth and education; Vermont's landscape and natural resources; health, transportation and public safety; and Vermont's civic culture.
