Rutland Regional plan survey launched


 Beginning this week, the Rutland Regional Planning Commission will ask residents to participate in the Rutland Regional Plan 2026 Online Survey. Survey results will be used to guide policies and actions for the eight-year plan update, which is intended to help shape coordinated and efficient community economic development. The plan is a vision for the future with broad goals to facilitate that vision.

 The survey is an important piece of the overall development process. Information collected will help inform a plan that features equitable policies to best serve the region’s communities. It will be complemented by several outreach efforts led by the Rutland Regional Planning Commission staff, including community open houses and pop-up events. As these activities are scheduled, they will regularly be updated on the Rutland Regional Plan 2026 website: rutlandprc.org/plan2026  

“It is crucial that we hear directly from the residents we serve. We recognize that each of our 27 towns face a variety of challenges and that there isn’t a one-size-fits-all solution,” said Devon Neary, RRPC’s executive director. “Our hope is that the community will share their thoughts with us so we can integrate those challenges and potential solutions into the 2026 plan update.”

The survey will be open through March 31, vist:
