The University of Vermont plans to undertake three major projects here this year, it has been announced.
According to Lecturer in Community Development and Applied Economics, Thomas DeSisto, the projects will be done in collaboration with the Consumer Affairs Department.
DeSisto said they include a survey among residents of the Island regarding their use of electricity and water, in an effort to understand the issues consumers face and any redress they have obtained.
He explained that for the fourth year, residents and business people in the Piton Management Area (PMA) will be interviewed in an effort to understand their relationship with the PMA.
The third project involves working with a school in Mon Repos on sustainable agriculture and composting practices, DeSisto stated.
