Interested in Zoning?

Over the next 18 months, the Planning Commission (PC) will be updating the zoning for East Montpelier, and you have a chance to participate in this important process. As the town plan is updated periodically to reflect current conditions, land uses, and new goals and visions, the zoning is adjusted to allow the new vision to be realized. In phase one of this two-phase undertaking, the zoning will be developed for the East Montpelier Village. Phase two will update the town-wide zoning, which includes zoning district boundaries, minimum lot sizes, setbacks, etc.

The PC will appoint up to five resident members of the Steering Committee, and that business will be first on the agenda for the twice-monthly PC meetings during the zoning process, and no separate Steering Committee meetings are expected to be held. The PC hopes to create a committee that is forward-thinking and represents a wide range of community viewpoints.

If you would like to be considered for the Steering Committee or simply want more information, please contact:

Bruce Johnson
East Montpelier Town Administrator
PO Box 157
East Montpelier, VT 05651
(802) 223-3313 x 204

Applicants should, at a minimum, submit a detailed letter of interest. The PC will consider appointments at its April 19, 2018 meeting.
