HARTFORD, Vt. (AP) - The Vermont Supreme Court has ruled that a proposed mixed-use development off Interstate 89 in Quechee does not comply with a regional plan.

The project has been proposed by Scott Milne, a Pomfret businessman who is running for the U.S. Senate as a Republican against Democratic U.S. Sen. Patrick Leahy.

The Valley News reports (https://bit.ly/2dVQry2 ) that the Supreme Court on Friday overturned a lower court ruling, finding that the Exit 1 interchange is not an appropriate location for major development.

The proposal calls for a mixed-use business park, with some residential units on 168 acres.

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.
