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. The purpose of the Assessment of Critical Non-Compliant Sidewalks, Paths, and Crossings is to assess, analyze, and develop a prioritization list of improvements to sidewalks, driveways, and intersections at identified study focus areas within the Town of Essex and Village of Essex Junction, Vermont.

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.

Town of Underhill Stormwater Master Plan

12.3 MB
Year:
2018
Theme:
Storm Water, Stormwater
Description:
The intent of this report is to present the data collected, evaluations, analyses, designs, and cost estimates for subwatersheds in Underhill under a contract between the Chittenden County Regional Planning Commission and Watershed Consulting Associates, LLC. Funding for the project was provided by a Vermont Department of Environmental Conservation, Clean Water Fund grant. The plan presented is intended to provide the watershed’s stakeholders a means by which to identify and prioritize future stormwater management efforts. This planning study presents a recommended collection of Best Management Practices (BMPs) that would address specific concerns that have been raised for these areas. In particular, there is great need to reduce stormwater impacts including phosphorus and sediment from stormwater runoff to receiving waters within the Town and the greater Lake Champlain Basin in light of future regulation under the Lake Champlain Total Maximum Daily Load requirements. Although there are other BMP strategies that could be implemented in the watershed, these are the sites and practices that project stakeholders believe will have the greatest impact and probability of implementation. These practices do not represent a regulatory obligation, nor is any property owner within the watershed obligated to implement them. This stormwater master plan, and therefore its resultant strategies, will be one of the actions in the Lamoille Tactical Basin Plan. This will put the BMP strategies in queue for state funding for implementation.
