Zoning Bylaw Update

The Planning Commission is in the process of updating the Zoning Bylaw – to be formally warned, reviewed, and adopted in 2020. This is a long process that includes making many small and large changes to an important document. Please feel free to review the current draft, linked below, and provide comments, questions, or other feedback.  Note: for now this is still very much a working draft – there will be numerous issues with section numbering, references, spacing, etc. until it gets closer to a final draft; please ignore those but by all means pass on any substantive comments to the Planning Commission!

Press Release:  Danville Village to Village Project Begins!

Rail Trail survey  We encourage everyone to take the survey!

The Danville Village to Village Master planning process is moving into the Wayfinding phase of the project and we need your input!  What is Wayfinding? It is instructional signage that helps us safely and conveniently navigate and move through a community.

A Wayfinding plan for the Danville segment of the Lamoille Valley Rail Trail is currently underway. We ask that you please take a moment to complete our short survey and let us know the key destinations in Danville that should be included in the plan.

Wayfinding can help point trail users to basic amenities, share mileage to important destinations in town and can even help boost the local economy by promoting our village businesses.

Thank you to Danville Girl Scout Troup 51442 for helping to kick-off this phase of the project!
