The Bristol Planning Commission’s 4-3 vote last Tuesday to temporarily allow gravel extraction in the town’s conservation districts is a slap in the face of town voters who, just four weeks previously on Town Meeting Day had rejected gravel extraction in conservation districts by 69 percent to 31 percent. That’s no small margin, and yet four members voted to reject that public sentiment based on seriously flawed reasoning.
MIDDLEBURY — Waterfront Video in May will end what has been a 13-year run in Middlebury’s Marble Works complex.
Waterfront Manager Adrienne Perry cited building issues and a changing movie rental industry as the primary reasons for the business’s decision to vacate the roughly 2,200-square-foot spot it has been occupying since the summer of 1998.
Waterfront will continue to operate its flagship store in Burlington.
