Vergennes PEL Study Land Use Visioning Public Workshop – Orange Route
December 4, 2023
6:00 PM - 8:00 PM
Vergennes Opera House - 120 Main Street, Vergennes, VT
What does the future of your community look like? The Vermont Agency of Transportation, in partnership with the Addison County Regional Planning Commission, invites you to attend a community workshop on the future uses of the land where you live and work.
If the Orange Route is chosen, what could happen to the land uses along the new road? Share your thoughts and vision. The Orange Route includes the construction of a new roadway west of Route 22A entirely within Vergennes, in close proximity to downtown. Click here for a map of the Orange Route. A separate workshop will be held for each route, click here for more information.
We invite all community members: residents, workers, property owners, business owners, and visitors to attend this workshop.
Join us and share your vision and ideas! Please click here to RSVP. It is not required to RSVP, but having an estimate of attendance will help us to plan for each event. By registering, the Study team will be able to contact you in the event a workshop is postponed due to inclement weather.
What will be discussed at the workshop? During the workshops, we will discuss a vision for the land uses along one or more of the proposed routes. The following are some of the topics we will be exploring during the workshop:
- Explore the land uses around the proposed route.
- Identify preferred residential and commercial streets.
- Consider the walkability and bicycle usage along the proposed route.
- Are there adequate recreational needs for residents, families, and visitors within the region?
- Is there a road within the region that is reflective of the surrounding land uses that you envision the new route could be?
