Agency of Natural Resources announces new, streamlined website
MONTPELIER — The Agency of Natural Resources has announced the launch of its new website, anr.vermont.gov.
Aimed to better serve the public, the new site features intuitive links to existing programs within each of the agency’s three departments in addition to expanded content on available maps, planning tools, permitting requirements, grants, loans and internship opportunities. Working in close communication with the three departments — Environmental Conservation; Fish & Wildlife; and Forests, Parks and Recreation — and the offices of Planning and General Counsel, the ANR web team has created a central hub where visitors can expect complete and current information about state-funded environmental initiatives.
In an effort to streamline and simplify available information, the new website prioritizes the most frequently asked questions that the ANR receives while keeping other keywords searchable and accessible. The website also features updates to relevant news items, public meetings and outdoor event notices, encouraging public involvement and promoting avenues for feedback. Seasonal images and clear contact links enable visitors to quickly reach an Agency employee if they have questions not addressed on-line.
“The Agency of Natural Resources needs public support to guide its mission to oversee and manage Vermont’s natural environment,” said Natural Resources Secretary Deb Markowitz. “By communicating the good work of our programs, providing reliable data and guiding public involvement, our new website has become one of the many ways we promote transparent government and open communication.”
