This position is based in the Springfield, VT office and serves the southeast portion of the state. The four Permit Specialists, located in Springfield, Rutland, Essex and Montpelier/St. Johnsbury, are responsible for advising Vermont's landowners.
The role of the Permit Specialist is to provide the public with a review of State permitting that may be required for any given project. Projects can range from construction of a single-family residence to multiple use commercial buildings in an industrial park, and any other project that might trigger the State's oversight due to a potential environmental impact.
A Permit Specialist may prepare a document called a Project Review Sheet (PRS) as a checklist to State permits an applicant may need. The Project Review Sheet is generally a preliminary determination of environmental permits. It lists the permitting agencies and departments and providing contact information. Knowing all the permits required before a project begins can prevent costly delays, saving applicants time and money.
Not all applicants need a Project Review Sheet for their project. The Permit Specialists provide guidance in this situation.
This position has a high degree of public interaction. Strong differences of opinion may be encountered. Permit Specialists routinely interact with DEC programs, other State agencies and municipalities. Duties are largely performed in an office setting. However, this position requires some travel. Occasional evening meetings may be required. Familiarity with DEC rules and regulations is a plus.
