Open Space and Resource Protection Regulations

Description: Municipal land use regulations offer an effective – though not necessarily permanent – way to preserve open space, including natural, cultural, and scenic resources that are important to the community. Regulations can be used to manage the type, density, and location of development in relation to designated open space areas, to incorporate “green infrastructure” into project design and to avoid or mitigate adverse impacts to critical or fragile cultural and ecological resources. This chapter of the Implementation Manual provides an introduction to the regulatory tools available to Vermont municipalities.
