By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — The Vergennes Planning Commission agreed on Monday to recommend that Vergennes aldermen make changes to proposed new zoning regulations based on testimony at the council’s May 8 public hearing.

The recommendations, according to planning chairman Shannon Haggett, will include a relaxed lot-frontage requirement in the new Historic Neighborhood District and a provision to allow multi-family housing in the Basin District.

Each recommendation was made after careful consideration at a two-and-a-half hour meeting, Haggett said.

Level city spending proposed

Posted on May 14, 2012 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — City Manager Mel Hawley introduced a draft budget to Vergennes aldermen at their May 8 meeting that could again allow them to keep level the portion of the city tax rate that funds municipal services.

The total of the proposed budget — not including fee-supported sewer spending — is $1,727,963, an increase of about $20,000.

Including $28,039 of charitable requests, the total grows to $1,756,002 and would increase by about $17,000 (because of a slight drop in those charitable requests).

VERGENNES — Aldermen moved closer on Tuesday to creating a final policy that will establish a three-member committee to handle, on a year-round basis, applications for displays on the city green — including the popular, decades-old Christian nativity scene.

The committee that is called for in that policy — a final draft of which remains to be written and approved — will consist of City Clerk Joan Devine and one member each of the city’s planning commission and recreation committee.

ANwSU eyes bond to fund projects at high school

Posted on May 10, 2012 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — Voters in the five Addison Northwest Supervisory Union towns will almost certainly be asked in either November or March to support a $2 million Vergennes Union High School bond that could also, in theory, approach $5 million.

The $2 million, said ANwSU Superintendent Tom O’Brien and business manager Kathy Cannon earlier this week, would pay for a long list of what they called long-term building needs and “health and safety” items.

VERGENNES — Back in January, guitar-playing 16-year-old Vergennes resident Matteo Palmer knew several things that turned out to be related.

Those were that he enjoys attending and volunteering for events at the Vergennes Opera House, the theater had in recent years found it more difficult to make ends meet, and Grammy-winning southern Vermont resident Will Ackerman had become one of his guitar idols.

VERGENNES — At 7 p.m. on Tuesday, May 8, Vergennes officials and residents will take what could be one of the final steps on what has been close to a five-year journey.

Then, in the city fire station’s basement meeting room, aldermen will convene a public hearing on new zoning regulations proposed by the Vergennes Planning Commission. A copy of the laws is posted at vergennes.org.

Planners have been working on those zoning laws since Vergennes adopted its award-winning city plan in October 2009.
