On June 19, 2013, the Chittenden County Regional Planning Commission (CCPRC) adopted the ECOS Plan as the Regional Plan and the Metropolitan Transportation Plan.  On June 25, 2013 the Greater Burlington Industrial Corporation (GBIC) adopted the ECOS Plan as the Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy (CEDS).  This Plan is the culmination of almost two years of dedicated work from our municipalities, 45+ organizations and residents.
