Ferrisburgh eyes energy-saving effort

Posted on December 20, 2010 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



FERRISBURGH — A state energy official will meet with the Ferrisburgh selectboard on Tuesday to explain the benefits of a program that could allow town property owners to finance energy-efficiency upgrades with long-term, town-backed loans.

Peter Adamczyk of the Vermont Energy Investment Corporation (VEIC), which among other things runs Efficiency Vermont, will discuss with selectmen whether Ferrisburgh should become a “Property Assessed Clean Energy,” or PACE, community.

It’s a model for funding energy efficiency that other Addison County towns could emulate.

Juice turned on at new Route 7 solar facility

VERGENNES — With the ceremonial flick of a giant switch last Wednesday, developers of the largest solar farm north of New Jersey fired up their $5 million project located on a 16-acre parcel off Route 7, next to Vergennes Union High School.

The project — known as the Ferrisburgh Solar Farm (FSF) — was spearheaded by Ernie Pomerleau and Brian Waxler, who playfully donned sunglasses to soften the glare of a series of strobe lights activated in the VUHS gym at the special unveiling on Dec. 15.

Finding common ground

FERRISBURGH — There is an old Balti Arab proverb that goes, “The first time you share tea with a Balti, you are a stranger. The second time you take tea, you are an honored guest. The third time you share a cup of tea, you become family.”

This proverb inspired the title of humanitarian Greg Mortenson’s popular book, “Three Cups of Tea,” which in turn inspired Ferrisburgh resident Mary Kerr, who has made it her mission to build connections between the United States and the Middle East.

FERRISBURGH — The owners of a Route 7 parcel and their representatives on Wednesday submitted to the Ferrisburgh Zoning Board of Adjustment a revised plan for what one of them called a “discount department store.” The 9.9-acre tract lies across the highway from the new solar farm near the intersection with Monkton Road.
About 20 people attended the second of two public hearings on a plan for a 10,000-square-foot, one-story, metal-sided and roofed Dollar General store, which the developers hope will be the first of three stores on the site.

Posted on November 4, 2010 |

FERRISBURGH — Ferrisburgh residents on Tuesday backed by a 733-470 margin, or 61-39 percent, the $150,000 purchase of a home and 2 acres next to and south of the town’s Route 7 office building and community meeting center.

Selectmen proposed the purchase, which they said will provide for the future needs of the town office building, including parking, better and safer access from the highway, and other needs now unforeseen.

The article approved by voters calls for financing the deal with a 10-year bank note that officials estimate will cost about $900 a month.

FERRISBURGH — Ferrisburgh artists Denis and Judith Rey Versweyveld have shared a home for 48 years, and a passion for art for even longer.

But until two years ago, they had never directly collaborated on their art.
