This is a simple, easy to use tool that allows communities to assess their own ability to handle projected growth and development. The scorecard is arranged into 8 categories based on locally developed principles that describe smart growth in Vermont. Each category has a series of multiple-choice questions that assign relative values to the chosen answers. Particularly good is the section on including citizens in the process of developing goals and strategies.
