As part of this meeting the Selectboard will conduct the first of a series of board work sessions to update the town’s hazard mitigation plan. This plan is designed to guide the town’s efforts to improve our disaster resiliency, mostly focused on our roads infrastructure and floodplain management. The plan is a FEMA expectation and required if the town wants to participate in federal hazard mitigation grant opportunities. Public input through direct participation in the plan development or by giving feedback on the various draft plan iterations is vital.

In June 2017, East Montpelier was awarded transportation funding to conduct a safety study of the Towne Hill, Gallison Hill, and Brazier Roads intersection area. Lamoureux & Dickinson Consulting Engineers and Broadreach Planning & Design are the consultants performing the study. This is very much a fast-tracked project — the study will be completed by the end of the year. There will be a number of public feedback events, the last of which will be held on November 20, 2017, 6:30 p.m. at the town office building as part of the Selectboard meeting. Materials will be posted here as they are available.
