What’s Envision Lyndon?
Envision Lyndon is a community planning initiative designed to help Lyndon Residents and stakeholders articulate a vision for the Town’s future, identify what works and what could be better, and create a plan to make it happen. Led by the Lyndon Planning Commission, the process will culminate in early 2020 with the adoption of a new community-supported Municipal Plan.
The Plan and the Process
Lyndon’s current Town Plan will expire early next year and the Lyndon Planning Commission is launching the Envision Lyndon initiative as a way to work with the community throughout 2019 to update the Plan for 2020. Planning empowers communities to create a shared vision for the future that reflects the values, needs, and aspirations of the people who live, work, and play there. A great municipal plan can help communities attract new businesses, define and preserve community character, and designate areas for targeted growth and revitalization. With your help the process will culminate in early 2020 with the adoption of a new community-supported Municipal Plan.
