Jurisdictional Opinions

A Jurisdictional Opinion (JO) is a ruling that determines whether a proposed development or subdivision is subject to Act 250 and whether an Act 250 permit is required. JOs are issued by the Act 250 District Coordinators pursuant to 10 V.S.A. § 6007(c) and Rule 3 of the Act 250 Rules.

Please note that a JO may be appealed to the Environmental Division of the Vermont Superior Court within 30 days of the issuance of the ruling. In this context, a JO listed below may not be the final ruling for the jurisdictional issue presented. Please check the Superior Court, Environmental Division website for information about any appeals of the below-listed JOs.

JOs issued in calendar years 2008 to the present are listed below. JOs from prior years will subsequently be added. If you would like to request JOs from years not listed below, please contact the NRB Central Office in Montpelier by e-mail or by phone at (802) 828-3309.
