TOWNSHEND, VERMONT TOWN PLAN
One of the primary duties of a Planning Commission in any town in Vermont is the production of a Town Plan. This is the document that is used to guide the future growth of the community and, now, also has some impact on the siting of alternative power generation facilities such as solar and wind “farms”. The Town Plan is an important part of the Act 250 process and, in Townshend, since there is no zoning, all proposed commercial operations that will use more than 1 acre of land must go through the ACT 250 process in order to be constructed.
The Windham Regional Commission, a regional Planning Commission, assists the local Planning Commission and has more information about Town Plans on their web site.
