Vermont’s Act 250 program provides a public, quasi-judicial process for reviewing and managing the environmental, social and fiscal consequences of major subdivisions and developments in Vermont. The program is implemented through the 9 District Environmental Commissions. Specific program objectives of Act 250 include:
thorough review of each Act 250 permit application under the requirements of the statutory criteria;
performing jurisdictional determinations and permit reviews as expeditiously as possible;
providing assistance to applicants and other parties in preparation for their participation in Act 250 proceedings;
assisting permittees in maintaining compliance with permit terms and conditions;
enforcing the requirements of Act 250 permits and the statute. Natural Resources Board
