HARTFORD, Vt. (AP) - Opponents of a travel company executive’s proposed development off Interstate 89 in Vermont have taken their grievance to the state’s Supreme Court.

The Valley News reports (https://bit.ly/22m8BMF ) the Preservation Trust of Vermont and the Vermont Natural Resources Council filed an amicus brief Friday requesting that the high court overrule a February court order granting Quechee Highlands a permit.

For 10 years, Scott Milne has tried to build office, retail and residential spaces on 168 acres off U.S. Route 4 near the interstate interchange.

Quechee Highlands has been opposed by the Two Rivers-Ottauquechee Regional Commission, among other groups, which say the project violates clauses prohibiting “principal retail establishments” from being constructed outside designated growth centers.

Milne says arguments will likely go before the Supreme Court this summer.
