For years, many residents of East Montpelier have wondered if affordable homes would ever come to the area. The main problem, of course, was the availability of land to build on. As most residents already know, land has been limited due to a variety of reasons. One of those reasons is the conservation use that is so popular around here. That may be changing. We read an interesting story about how land is being used, and how that use may change. Here is the first part of that story.
“After decades of conservation efforts, East Montpelier is considering refocusing its land use goals to support more affordable housing. The town is kicking off the conversation by holding a Land Conservation Summit. East Montpelier has a lot of single-family houses on predominantly large lots. The town is also home to many working farms. Some of those farms have permanent conservation easements. And a lot of the farmland is enrolled in Vermont’s Current Use program.”
