Missed the Public Forum? Watch it online!

Missed the Municipal Development Plan Public Forum? Thanks to Vermont Community Access Media (VCAM), it’s now available online!

The City’s Planning Commission hosted a Public Forum on Thursday, September 13, 2018 regarding potential land use zoning and policy changes to the Municipal Development Plan for Vergennes. The current Plan must be renewed by September 2019. See Municipal Development Plan – We Need You! for details on the Plan and the renewal process.



Thank You from the Planning Commission

Thank you to everyone who attended the Planning Commission’s public forum on September 13, 2018! While we may not have reached consensus on all issues, the tenor of the discussion was fabulous. Everyone who participated was respectful and civil, and the discussions were lively and informative. The number of people participating exceeded our expectations. It makes us proud to be part of this community!

The forum would not have been possible without the generous support of the following businesses and organizations – and we thank them!

  • Hired Hand Brewing Co.
  • Daily Chocolate
  • Shacksbury Cider
  • 3 Squares Café
  • Vermont Community Access Media (VCAM)
  • The Vergennes Opera House

Everyone has given the Planning Commission plenty of things to consider as we update our municipal plan and it is likely we will hold another forum later as we continue our efforts. If you were not able to attend, please know that we still would like your input!

For more information and updates throughout the Plan’s renewal process, please visit Municipal Development Plan – We Need You! The Plan is available electronically online and in hardcopy in the City Clerk’s Office. Please provide your comments, questions, complaints, new ideas or suggestions via email to: vergennesplan@gmail.com.
