I-89 Exit 12 Transportation Improvement District (TID)

3.3 MB
Year:
2019
Theme:
Impact Fees, Municipal Planning, Transportation
Description:
The CCRPC worked alongside the Vermont Agency of Transportation (VTrans) and the Town of Williston to evaluate the feasibility of creating a Transportation Improvement District (TID) at the Exit 12/Taft Corners area in Williston, VT. In 2014, the Vermont General Assembly passed Act 145 (H.740) which establishes a Transportation Impact Fee that may be required by an Agency of Natural Resources District Environmental Commission (DEC) or by VTrans to help pay for transportation improvements that directly benefit proposed or future developments. One mechanism by which Transportation Impact Fees can be assessed is through a TID. RSG was retained by CCRPC to analyze and evaluate the potential TID in this area and identify a pathway toward implementation.

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.
