Group readies forum results


As Vermont evolves and the economic climate changes, it seems the need for a broad assessment of the state, along the values of the people living here, crops up periodically.

The Council on the Future of Vermont was created by the Vermont Council on Rural Development in the fall of 2007 to tackle the challenge of compiling data on a wide range of topics, a process that involved numerous public forums, surveys, and interviews with business and organizations.

One of 14 public forums throughout the state took place in Brattleboro last August. Now, a year and a half after the project began, the council is preparing to present its findings.
