Greensboro is a rural community of working Vermonters but also a destination for the vacation bound and second homeowners. There are almost twice as many out-of-state landowners in Greensboro than residents. This creates a challenging land use planning dynamic that confronts issues such as affordable housing, local economic development, recreation planning, and land conservation. Crane Associates worked closely with town officials and the general public through a series of public meetings to address each of these challenges. The result was a new town plan fully compliant with current Vermont planning laws. The town will soon engage Crane Associates to assist with the zoning ordinances to complete the plans implementation.
