Act 250 Permit Received!!! – October 25, 2012
After a year- long process of public hearings, securing a multitude of ANR permits and deliberation of the District 7 Commission, co-applicants VAST and VTrans have received the Act 250 permit for Phase I construction of the four season multiple use recreation trail, also known as the Lamoille Valley Rail Trail. This includes the construction of 44 miles of trail during this phase.
The three-page permit outlines criterion that must be met in relation to the Findings of Fact and Conclusion of Law incorporated with the permit. This includes the designation of hours of snowmobile operation on the LVRT from 6am to 11pm and the development of a monitoring plan for snowmobile traffic and policing efforts.
This is great news for the organized recreation community and we look forward to breaking ground on the LVRT.
