Colchester Inspection and Inventory of Existing Stormwater System

12.6 MB
Year:
2019
Theme:
capital planning, Stormwater
Description:
Hoyle, Tanner & Associates, Inc. completed stormwater structure and pipe condition assessments and recorded collected data in Town GIS format for future integration with the Town’s Asset Management Program. The overall stormwater infrastructure refurbishment need was identified and a Capital Budget Program for Stormwater Infrastructure was developed for future refinement by Town Staff to aid in future infrastructure planning efforts. Results of a Top Down pipe condition analysis - completed based on pipe material, typical service life and estimated installation year - broadly estimates $5.1M in stormwater infrastructure capital budget need. However, the results of the pipe segment Zoom Camera condition assessments indicate that approximately 75% of this $5.1M in stormwater infrastructure capital budget need had a “Pass” rating. This reveals that a significant amount of the stormwater infrastructure, although exceeding a typical service life, has some service life remaining. There were also Stormwater Pipe Segments that had an Emergency Rating indicating immediate work required. Many of these pipes were not in the $5.1M dollar Top Down evaluation.

Vermont 15 Corridor Study: Essex to Winooski

30.4 MB
Year:
2015
Theme:
Corridor, Route 15, Transportation, Vermont 15
Description:
The goal of the VT 15 Corridor Study is to develop a comprehensive multi-modal transportation improvement plan (Plan) for the VT 15 corridor from Main Street (“Circulator”) in Winooski through the towns of Colchester and Essex and the Village of Essex Junction, to the border of Essex and Jericho. The Susie Wilson Corridor from VT 15 to VT 2A was also addressed. The Plan presents a long-term vision and goals for the corridor and recommends a number of short, medium and long-term transportation and land use strategies to achieve the vision over time. Transportation strategies developed for the study area address highway, pedestrian, bicycle and public transit modes. Land use, access management and corridor aesthetic strategies were also developed that support the long term vision of the VT 15 corridor. This Plan builds on the numerous planning efforts, development programs and projects that have been initiated over the last several years along the VT 15 Corridor by state, regional and local entities. This final report includes all interim reports prepared throughout this study to: assess the current and future land use and transportation conditions in the study area; develop a vision and goals for the study corridors; and articulate strategies to achieve the vision through a detailed implementation plan.

Bayside Build-Out Land Use Analysis

445.6 kB
Year:
2015
Theme:
Buildout, Intersection, Land Use, New Capacity, Traffic, Transportation
Description:
CCRPC staff worked with Town staff to evaluate multiple transportation alternatives in order to improve capacity at the Bayside Park intersection. Alternatives 3B and 4B were the alternatives recommended for land use analysis. The purpose of the land use analysis was to determine the amount of development (in terms of new dwelling units and commercial floor area) that could occur given the increased capacity and additional trips that could be accommodated through the Bayside Park intersection as a result of the transportation improvements. This memo also estimates tax revenue associated with the additional development for Alternative 3B.
