Planning Overview:

The Vermont Agency of Natural Resources released a draft Long Range Management Plan for the Camel's Hump Management Unit in October 2017. The plan was presented at four public meetings in November and December of 2017 and more than 120 people attended the meetings to engage with ANR staff. The Agency accepted public comments on the plan from October 25, 2017 through January 15, 2018, and again from March 2, 2018 through April 13, 2018. Well over 700 comments were received.

Now that the public comment period closes, all comments will be compiled and grouped by theme (mountain biking, hiking, back-country skiing, timber/wildlife habitat management, etc.). Responses to the grouped comments will be addressed in summary format. The responsiveness summary will be sent to all who attended a public meeting and provided contact information and to those who provided written comment by email or sent to our street address. The responsiveness summary will describe any changes that will be made to the draft plan based upon input received during this public involvement process. Every effort will be made to include suggestions which are compatible with the ANR and its department’s missions; compatible with ANR lands management principles and goals; and which are fiscally realistic.

An FAQ document has been created to answer common questions about the Draft LRMP.
