By Andy Kirkaldy



FERRISBURGH — About three months after the offer was first made, the Ferrisburgh selectboard on Feb. 5 voted unanimously to sign a letter of intent with Burlington firm Encore Redevelopment that could pave the way for a solar array on town-owned land.

Encore officials believe that a lease deal for a parcel at the intersection of Routes 7 and 22A could put almost $500,000 in Ferrisburgh’s coffers over the next two decades.

Posted on January 3, 2013 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



FERRISBURGH — The town of Ferrisburgh was presented in November an offer to lease about 3.5 acres of its 34.9-acre parcel next to Vergennes, an offer that according to the company making it could be worth about a half-million dollars over its 20-year term.

But the selectboard has yet to carefully study whether that claim is accurate or enter into serious negotiations with Encore Redevelopment, the Burlington firm proposing to lease the land and put a solar panel array on it that would produce 700,000 kilowatts a year.

FERRISBURGH — Environmental Court Judge Thomas Durkin on Oct. 24 ruled in favor of a group of landowners who would like to build a Dollar General store on a 9.9-acre Ferrisburgh parcel that lies at a prominent Route 7 intersection across from Vergennes.

Neighbors, joined by a number of other Ferrisburgh residents, had appealed the Ferrisburgh Zoning Board of Adjustment’s (ZBA) approval of the 10,640-square-foot store, which Group Five LLC intends to build across Route 7 from the Ferrisburgh Solar Farm and across Monkton road from Denecker Chevrolet.
