VARD’s role in $100,000 Envision Victor grant
VARD is proud to partner with the City of Victor, the Orton Family Foundation and Teton Valley Trails and Pathways on the Envision Victor project, which is being supported by a $100,000 grant from the Orton Foundation.
Over the course of this two year project, the community of Victor will explore and articulate what defines the “heart and soul” of their community. A focus of the project is going beyond land use planning to the very social fabric of the community, it's core values and unique “sense of place”.
This competitive grant was awarded to only 4 communities in the country. VARD was instrumental in writing the grant and organizing the site visit from the Orton Foundation, which was part of the competitive application process.
A Project Coordinator for the Envision Victor Project will be hired in January 2009. You can visit the Victor City blog and the Envision Victor project blog to follow the progress of this innovative and timely project. To learn more about the Orton Foundation go to www.orton.org.
