Village project ‘definition of smart growth’
Development takes advantage of housing law
By Jason Starr, Essex Reporter, August 27, 2009
The Village Haven neighborhood in Essex Junction is billed as an example of Vermont’s newest affordable housing strategy.
The 24-home complex off Roscoe Court near West Street is the first development in the state to take advantage of the “Vermont Neighborhood” desig-nation created by lawmakers last year. The designation eliminates the state’s Act 250 environmental review, cutting out significant time and costs for the developer.

No place like home Vermont Neighborhoods Program addresses affordable-housing shortage Champlain Business Journal
By By John R. Dolan, February 2009, from Champlain Business Journal
“Many developers would prefer to build in town center areas, but sometimes the cost to do so can be prohibitive. The Vermont Neighborhoods Program offers one way to mitigate some of those costs, and it will certainly spark interest in areas that may have otherwise not seemed cost-effective to build on.” — Brad Dousevicz, owner, Dousevicz Inc.
Vermont faces a pair of closely related conundrums when it comes to new housing:
- How to tackle the housing shortage without letting such development eat away at the rural landscape?
- How to fill the most dire need — affordable housing — when it is more expensive and difficult for developers to build near the middle of town?
