Green Up Day is May 7th

This annual statewide event was launched in 1970 to promote the stewardship of our state’s natural landscape and waterways, and raise public awareness about the benefits of a litter-free environment. Pick up Green Up bags and get out in the community on Saturday, May 7th to clean up your neighborhood after the long winter! Keep VERMONT beautiful. As volunteers we can make a difference!

Late ARPA Project & Expenditure Report?

Local municipalities will not be penalized if the first annual Project & Expenditure Report is late as a result of access issues to Treasury’s portal. If you were not able to complete your reporting by the April 30th deadline, please contact Annie McLean for assistance. [email protected] NVDA is here to help with everything ARPA.

Lamoille Valley Rail Trail Scheduled for Completion This Fall

The long anticipated four-seasons recreation trail will run 93 miles from St. Johnsbury to Swanton. In addition to providing a smooth, safe surface on which to walk, run or ride (horseback, bicycle or snowmobile), the trail corridor is expected to bolster the economies of the towns through which it passes. In the NEK, those towns are Hardwick, Greensboro, Stannard, Walden, Danville and St. Johnsbury.

The segment between West Danville and Hardwick will be finished by November 12. Effective July 1st, the trails will be under the management of VTrans, and VAST will play a prominent role during the winter months.
