PROJECT DESCRIPTION

Project Summary: This project will engage the community in a planning process for the historic village of East Hardwick. The planning consultant will work with a broad range of stakeholders including village residents, property owners, businesses, and organizations. The completed comprehensive plan will create a blueprint for undertaking future projects in East Hardwick including: multimodal transportation improvements (streetscaping, wayfinding, bicycle and pedestrian infrastructure, parking, and access management), revised land use regulations and design standards, redevelopment and infill projects, marketing initiatives, recreation connections, and other community development activities.

Additionally, the project will identify opportunities to integrate green stormwater infrastructure into Village streetscaping, using the Vermont Green Streets Guide as inspiration, and also address key stormwater runoff issues at and around the Main Street Bridge.

River & Stream Debris Information

Please see the attached link below. The State of Vermont needs help in order to proceed with the clean up of the debris from the flood that occurred in July. It is very important that property owners report debris to the Town Manager’s Office 802-472-6120. This will help the State of Vermont and State Emergency Management Program know where there needs attention.
