During June the East Montpelier Planning Commission will hold a series of public open houses focusing on the draft zoning districts in specific areas of town. All the open houses will be held at the Emergency Services Facility (the village fire station; 54 Village Acres) and start at 7:00 p.m. The open houses are designed to provide the opportunity to informally ask questions and discuss district purposes, boundaries, uses, dimensional standards, and development standards with the Planning Commission and its consultant. There will be large maps available for review. Please join us to provide comments and feedback on the draft districts. Refreshments will be available.
