Opinion: Act 250 process protected Ferrisburgh from sprawl

Posted on December 19, 2014 |
By Nick Patch



I applaud the Vermont Agency of Natural Resources and their recent ruling on the proposed Denecker development at the junction of Routes 7 and 22A in Ferrisburgh. Their ruling that this development would encourage sprawl development in the Route 7 corridor is spot on. The Route 7 corridor in Ferrisburgh is under huge development pressure and I am pleased that the ANR and the Addison County Regional Planning commission recognize that.

Editorial: Powehouse decision should add polish to Riverfront Park

Posted on September 29, 2014 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



In the summer of 1997, Florida architect Alfred Browning Parker, who had a second home in Lincoln, proposed a futurist design for a restaurant that would sit atop of the old mill powerhouse at the edge of the Middlebury Falls on Otter Creek. A front-page sketch of Parker’s vision (published on June 27, 1997) resembled a three-story space needle-like structure with magnificent views of the falls and river.

Opinion: Actions should match rhetoric

Posted on March 5, 2014 |
By Stephen M. Koller



As I am not a Middlebury resident, I hold no financial stake in the debate as to the best location for the Middlebury town offices and gym yet, as the controversy unfolded, I was disturbed by a sense of inconsistency in Middlebury College’s role on this issue. I find a rather glaring disconnect between words and actions when it comes to Middlebury College’s position on the environment.
