Land Use

Governments use land-use planning to manage the development of land within their jurisdiction. Effective land use planning involves regulating the use of land in an efficient and ethical way. The Comprehensive Plan for the Town of Vermont is the long-term planning document that provides a rational basis for local land use decisions.

If you are considering a change to your property such as a zoning change, installation of a driveway or field/farm road, creating a home site or putting up a building over 100 sq. feet, you will need to reference the linked pages in the list below to help guide you through these important processes.

The Land Use Intent Form is the application that is used to submit a land use proposal to the Town of Vermont Plan Commission and Board. The Town of Vermont has chosen to use a single application form for all land use-related requests.
