Solar Siting Materials and Resources:

The Community Planning Toolbox (the “Toolbox”) introduces users to issues, techniques, and resources for smart growth planning. It features case studies and sample tools that demonstrate how other communities have addressed similar challenges to those facing your community.  The Toolbox was developed by Smart Growth Vermont, which merged with VNRC in 2011. Since then, VNRC has maintained and updated this resource.
