2018
Theme:
Bicycle & Pedestrian, Bike and Ped, Recreation, Safety, Sidewalk, Technical Assistance
Description:
In the Vermont communities of Essex and Essex Junction sidewalks, driveways, and intersection crossing infrastructure may be deficient, with ADA ramps, deteriorating sidewalk or pathways creating travel impairments, and signalized intersections that may not meet these requirements. State and federal laws and regulations require local governments to ensure that people with disabilities have full access to civic life within their communities.

Essex Land Use Regulation Housing Audit

1.5 MB
Year:
2018
Theme:
Housing, Land Use, Municipal Planning
Description:
This report includes a variety of recommendations for the Town of Essex Zoning Regulations to eliminate barriers to affordable housing. Some of these recommendations are broad in scope while others are simple housekeeping changes. The broader recommendations go beyond a text edit in the zoning regulations and, while complex, may produce a more beneficial result than the minor housekeeping recommendations. The broader recommendations should be considered within the context of a housing needs assessment, and perhaps by a housing committee if and when established. This report should also help as a guide when implementing changes from the Town Center visioning work.
