BRISTOL — The Bristol Planning Commission next week will likely wrap up a months-long march toward a new zoning regulation that would govern gravel pits in town.

Bristol voters back Holley Hall repairs

BRISTOL — Bristol voters by a margin of 133 to 75 voted on Tuesday to approve a bond of up to $750,000 to repair Holley Hall.

The 208 voters who turned out for the special vote represented a little less than 8 percent of the town’s voter checklist. While selectboard Chair Carol Wells said the turnout was disappointing, she was pleased with the outcome of the vote.

“Obviously, I’m excited that it passed,” Wells said. “Now we can move on to the next phase of finalizing the plan and trying to get the best bid possible and start securing other funds to reduce the bond.”

BRISTOL — Bristol voters this week will consider the second of two large bond votes in recent months when they take to the polls Tuesday to weigh a $750,000 bond to fund Holley Hall repairs and renovations.

The vote comes after voters on Aug. 25 agreed 142 to 87 to move forward with a $1.5 million stormwater system upgrade.

The Holley Hall improvements would focus on making the building more handicap accessible, fixing structural and wiring problems, adding insulation and reorganizing the basement town offices.

Mt. Abe paves new paths to graduation

BRISTOL — Imagine a high school curriculum that takes a science lesson out of the lab and into nearby fields and forests, or an art class that requires students to take photos in their communities rather than in a classroom studio. Consider a physics unit that does away with textbooks in favor of rebuilding a car’s engine, or a music lesson that requires a student to build an instrument in addition to playing one.

Shelter expands focus on transitional housing

Posted on December 3, 2009 |
By Kathryn Flagg



web_elizabethready.jpg

BRISTOL — The John Graham Emergency Shelter on Monday closed a deal for a $198,000 home in Bristol, which the Vergennes-based homeless shelter intends to covert into three units of transitional housing.

The deal comes at a time of rising demand for the homeless shelter’s services. It marks a ratcheting up of the organization’s efforts to use transitional housing to give families and individuals a place to get back on their feet while they hunt for a permanent residence that is away from the hubbub of the shelter but under the umbrella of a support system.

Mt. Abe board aims to level-fund school budget

Posted on December 3, 2009 |
By Kathryn Flagg



BRISTOL — The Mount Abraham Union High School board of directors Tuesday continued taking tentative steps toward a draft spending plan that reflects a zero-percent increase in educational spending — a goal that board chair Lanny Smith said leaves the board “between a rock and a hard place.”

“We don’t have anything left to cut,” said Smith.

Last year, voters in the five towns that feed into Mount Abe approved a roughly $12.8 million spending plan, down just less than 1 percent from spending in 2007-2008.
