Welcome to the Town of Shaftsbury, Vermont


Garage and Zoning Bylaws Informational Meeting

Proposed New Highway Garage

  • When: Monday, February 27, 2017
  • Time: 7:00 PM
  • Place: Cole Hall

GARAGE: Shaftsbury is on track to build the garage in 2017:
    • Taxes will not go up; already in budget as reserve
    • We have saved more than 20% for the down payment
    • New location is near current transfer station
    • Includes a new transfer station facility (not a building)
    • Includes demolition and disposals of houses we bought on North Road
    • Gets highway operations out of our Village Center and away from our school kids

    ZONING: In 2016, the Shaftsbury Planning Commission with the Bennington County Regional Commission undertook to rewrite our zoning bylaws in order to:
      • correct various inconsistencies
      • clarify the language
      • align with changes in State statutes
      • clarify the Sign Ordinance regarding lighted signs
      • add a user guide explaining the permit process

      Other significant changes are outlined in the Bylaws Changes link below.
