dc.description.abstract In rural Vermont, public, outdoor spaces are an increasingly precious commodity to local communities and visitors alike. As the threat of urbanization spreads into Vermont, municipalities and residents must make careful land use and development decisions in order to preserve and/or incorporate such spaces into the local and regional setting. Throughout time, the social and political idea of public access for the greater good, has been defined as the Commons. The physical manifestation of this concept has also been called the Commons and has been reflected in the landscape in a variety of forms in both rural and urban environments. By melding Vermont's traditional form and value of the Village Common as civic center to the contemporary translation of the Commons as our shared access to cultural and natural heritage, Vermont village character and local community resources can be maximized and celebrated. en
