     Vermont Statewide Parcel Data

    Return on Investment Study

    Please Join Us for an Interactive Workshop Focused on

    Assessing the Value of Statewide Parcel Data

    Background. Since the fall of 2013, representatives of state agencies, regional planning commissions, nonprofits (VLCT), and professional organizations (VSLS, VALA) have been meeting to discuss how to make consistent, up-to-date, statewide parcel data a reality in Vermont. That group eventually became the Enterprise Geospatial Consortium’s (EGC) Parcel Workgroup. The workgroup has been discussing the technical, political, and funding aspects of an imagined statewide parcel data layer and is very aware of what a complicated issue this is.

    As part of the statewide parcel data effort, the state is embarking on a Return on Investment (ROI) Study to assess the value of digital parcels to various entities throughout the state.

    Your input to this process is essential. Your knowledge and opinions will inform the ROI results and help determine the path forward for the state. Please register by January 16 and join us for one of the following workshops (registration may be opened to a wider group at that time if there still room).
