FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
The Town of Woodbury Planning Commission announce the kick-off of the project to re-write the 2003 Town Plan, which expired several years ago. The planning process is expected to be completed in fall 2021 following a period of extensive community consultation. Interactions with community members will initially be by telephone or email due to COVID restrictions. The Planning Commission hopes public meetings will be possible next spring.
Vermont towns are expected to have up-to-date plans, which have a number of benefits, including helping Woodbury invest town resources wisely, access grant funding, and have a greater voice in guiding development.
In order to share information and gather input on the development of the new plan, the Planning Commission will reach out to community members, groups and organizations who can provide objective information and help the Planning Commission in understanding opportunities, problems, alternatives and solutions to improve Woodbury as a place to live. The aim is to work directly with these organizations and Woodbury citizens throughout the planning process to ensure their concerns and aspirations are understood and thoughtfully considered.
A town-wide survey will be released on November 6, 2020. The Planning Commission request that the survey be filled out online or on paper and returned to us by January 6, 2021. The survey will seek opinions on commercial and residential land use, residential and commercial growth, employment opportunities, broadband expansion, zoning ordinance updates, future Woodbury Graded School uses, shoreland and village district’s growth opportunities, forest conservation, recreational opportunities, etc.
Look for the survey link on the Woodbury Town web site. Links to the survey will be published in Front Porch Forum and the Hardwick Gazette as well. Paper copies of the survey may be picked-up and returned to the Town Offices, attention: Woodbury Planning Commissioner.
