RSG Works with The City of Burlington And The CCRPC to Improve Intersection Safety with Solution-oriented Pilot Project

Working with RSG, the Chittenden County Regional Planning Commission, and various stakeholders, Burlington’s Department of Public Works announced the start of a “solution-oriented pilot-program” at the Pearl Street/Prospect Street/Colchester Avenue intersection as part of the Pearl Street/Prospect Street/Colchester Avenue Scoping Study. This notoriously busy and problematic intersection, designated a high-crash location by VTrans, will undergo a number of changes during the pilot project including a new traffic pattern, signals, and signage. The piloted changes are part of a short term alternative being considered and will allow the project’s Steering Committee to evaluate and compare it to other longer term/higher-cost options that cannot be field tested.

RSG’s Traffic Exaction Formula Adopted by Town of Seabrook, NH

The Town of Seabrook Planning Board recently voted to amend their Site Plan Regulations to include RSG’s traffic exaction formula for US 1 through Town. US 1 is a densely developed commercial corridor that faces significant development pressure and ongoing traffic congestion. RSG worked with the Town of Seabrook (NH) to develop a clear, understandable approach to developer traffic exactions (i.e., per trip cost that a developer must pay to develop along a specific corridor to fund road improvements) that would provide a fair and level playing ground for developers and allow the Town and NHDOT to finance critical improvements to the US 1 corridor. It is great to see our work making a positive impact.

The Supreme Court Rules DOMA is Unconstitutional

The Supreme Court ruled today in favor of equal treatment under federal law for legally married same-sex couples, a position RSG supported in an employer amicus brief filed earlier this year on behalf of 278 employers nationwide. RSG was one of only two Vermont companies to sign the brief, which argued that DOMA forced employers to separate lawfully married employees into two categories—married same-sex couples and married opposite-sex couples—for taxation purposes and benefits administration.
