Brandy Saxton worked with the Hartford Comprehensive Plan Committee to revise the plan for this agricultural town in Washington County. A public opinion survey was distributed to all households and a series of planning workshops were held to gather public input.

New Haven Town Plan

Town of New Haven, VT - 2010
Brandy Saxton assisted the New Haven Planning Commission with an update to their town plan. The project focused on the future land use plan, particularly along the Route 7 highway corridor. This followed up on public outreach and meetings, facilitated by Brandy Saxton, in the fall of 2008 that examined Route 7 and led to recommended changes in the town’s approach to land use planning and regulation in the corridor. The town plan revisions also reconsider New Haven’s approach to regulating its rural lands to discourage further strip development along road frontage and encourage clustered development to preserve open space and rural character.
