Recently, the Vermont Law School Land Use Clinic launched

In Vermont, most land use decisions are made by volunteers, frequently without staff support. In 2010, we conducted a survey of zoning administrators, development review board members, planning commissioners, applicants and concerned citizens. The Vermont Law School Land Use Clinic wondered if a blog written by law students could be helpful to these folks. The survey results indicated an interest and need for plain English summaries of key municipal land use and state permitting decisions.

They hope to update the blog weekly to summarize important developments in Vermont land use law. Check it out at
