Severe Storm 2023 Recovery

Thank you for your efforts addressing the recovery from Severe Storm 2023.

On July 13, 2023, the Governor issued Addendum 1 to Executive Order 03-23, which temporarily waives certain land use permit conditions and Act 250 permitting requirements to assure availability of material for the use of the State or municipalities, or contractors on behalf of the State or municipalities, to rebuild critical infrastructure impacted by the July 2023 severe storm. The Executive Order and waiver have been extended by Addendum 10.

If you are an owner of an earth material pit or quarry or asphalt or concrete plant using the waiver under the Addendum:

  1. Review the latest version of Guidance on Waiver of Act 250 Permitting Requirements in Response to Severe Storm 2023, and
  2. Fill out the revised Documentation Form: Severe Storm 2023 and email it to us. Only if you are using the extension, refile this form in accordance with the guidance.

If you have questions about the usage of this temporary waiver or process, contact us.
