Residents in charge of state's future


What Vermonters are most concerned about is universal -- preserving the working landscape, fortifying the unity of their communities, retaining the Vermont "brand," creating local energy sources, making sure their children get the best education, keeping the costs of health care reasonable and being able to afford a home.

While every resident of the Green Mountain State recognizes those challenges, many also ask what
exactly can be done to address them? Though the purpose of the Council on the Future of Vermont, a project of the Vermont Council on Rural Development, was to ask the question about what challenges the state faces, its next task is even harder -- finding solutions.
