Sharon Murray, FAICP

Sharon Murray set a goal early in her career to elevate the practice and profession of planning in Vermont and northern New England. With a deep knowledge of planning law and practice grounded in municipal and regional experience and an ability to explain complex ideas, she helped protect the state’s landmark planning statutes in the early 1990s, led the overhaul of Vermont’s regulatory enabling statutes ten years later and continues to represent planners in state policy initiatives. She authored and contributed to numerous award-winning publications including Vermont’s planning and implementation manuals, achieving and exceeding her original goal.
