Public Policy & Programming

Through our Public Policy Committee, Chamber & Economic Development of the Rutland Region monitors and weighs in on legislation that could impact the business community. As a service to our members and prospective developers, it is our mission to:

  • Provide the opportunity to call upon experienced land-use and development professionals to provide information concerning permit processes,
  • Assist in identifying the forms of information necessary to prepare land-use and development permit applications,
  • Provide guidance to enable prospective applicants to identify potential problem areas and professional consultants to represent them in the permit processes.*

Do you have business questions or concerns regarding Public Policy in Rutland County? Call us at (802) 773-2747.

*It should be noted that the relationship between CEDRR and a prospective developer is educational, not professional. This does not supplant the technical consultation, nor expose CEDRR to liability.

Legislative Breakfast Series

In the Rutland Region of Vermont, you’re not just a number, you’re a person with a real voice in local and state government. We are proud to provide you with opportunities to directly interact with your State Representatives, Senators, Congressmen, and Governor.

Chamber & Economic Development of the Rutland Region closely monitors legislative activity on behalf of our members and addresses the issues that need our support or opposition to maintain a business climate favorable to operating small and large enterprises in Vermont.

We encourage you to let us know if there is an issue you feel is important to the community.

Chamber & Economic Development of the Rutland Region’s participation with the Vermont State Chamber of Commerce further leverages our voice as part of a larger group made up of businesses from all over the state. We are pleased to say that as a result of our vigilance and commitment to staying on top of the issues that affect our membership, our Rutland County delegates respect the position of our members and listen attentively to our concerns.
