Proposed Amendments to the 2016 Central Vermont Regional Plan – REVISION

In accordance with 24 VSA 117 Section §4348(e), the Central Vermont Regional Planning Commission is providing notice of a revision to the proposed plan amendment following the first public hearing which took place on Tuesday, September 8, 2020. The final hearing is scheduled to take place on Tuesday, October 13, 2020 via GoToMeeting. To join from your computer, tablet or smartphone visit:  https://global.gotomeeting.com/join/552444045 Dial in via phone: (872) 240-3212; Access Code: 552-444-045. Please download the app at least 5 minutes prior to the meeting start: https://global.gotomeeting.com/install/552444045.

The revision is to the Regional Center boundary around the City of Montpelier as it appears on the Future Land Use Map. The Regional Center boundary will be extended to include a portion of Northfield Street from the intersection of Route 2 southward to Derby Drive. This area is also within the City’s designated Growth Center.

The proposed amendments being considered will result in the removal the Housing Distribution Plan from the Housing Chapter; and a technical correction to the Regional Center boundary around the City of Montpelier as it appears on the Future Land Use Map. The remainder of the 2016 Central Vermont Regional Plan, last amended in 2018 will remain unchanged. General comments and specific comments with respect to the extent to which the revision is consistent with the goals established in 24 VSA §4302 may be provided in person at the public hearings or submitted in writing by close of business on October 13, 2020 to Clare Rock, Senior Planner at rock@cvregion.com.  The revision can be viewed here.


Transportation Resilience in the Steven’s Branch

CVRPC, in cooperation with communities in the Steven’s Branch watershed, has been awarded a grant to add the watershed to the Vermont Transportation Resilience Planning Tool.

The Tool is a web-based application that identifies bridges, culverts, and road embankments that are vulnerable to damage from flood inundation, erosion, and deposition. It estimates risk based on the vulnerability and criticality of roadway segments and identifies potential mitigation measures based on the factors driving the vulnerability. The Tool combines river science, hydraulics, and transportation planning methods.

This Tool will assist communities to be proactive in how they approach infrastructure improvement projects and flood damage resilience.
