The Mad River Valley Planning District was created in 1985 by the Towns of Fayston, Waitsfield and Warren. The Purpose of the Planning District is to "carry out a program of planning for the future of the Mad River Valley. The planning program shall be directed toward the physical, social, economic, fiscal, environmental, cultural and aesthetic well being of the member Towns and its inhabitants." Review the Articles of Agreement. MOU_Sugarbush

The Planning District currently has a full time Executive Director and a part-time Planning Coordinator. The District is governed by a Steering Committee that consists of a Selectboard Member and a Planning Commission member from each of the three member Towns, a business representative from the Mad River Valley Chamber of Commerce, and a non-voting representative from Sugarbush Resort. The Central Vermont Regional Planning Commission (CVRPC) has a non-voting ex-officio seat. The three towns and Sugarbush fund the Planning District equally.

Here is a 30 year retrospective of MRVPD's planning, collaboration & capacitiy building in the MRV.
