Ferrisburgh to vote on property purchase

Posted on October 28, 2010 |
By Tamara Hilmes



FERRISBURGH — Ferrisburgh selectmen are asking residents on Tuesday to back their proposed purchase of a property adjacent to the town office building.
Selectmen this summer struck a $150,000 deal — subject to voter approval on Nov. 2 — with homeowners Donald and Patience Sisters for their home and 2 acres. That property sits south of the Grange Hall that serves as Ferrisburgh’s town office building and community meeting center; that building rests on 1 acre.

Ferrisburgh couple sharing a vision on art, housing

Posted on September 30, 2010 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



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. Now, their latest show of their joint work — called “Shelter:Dwelling:House:Home,” sculptures of homes by Denis painted on by Judith, plus Judith’s paintings of homes — is on display in the Vermont Arts Council’s Spotlight Gallery in Montpelier through Oct. 29.

Ferrisburgh puts land on market

Posted on September 16, 2010 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



FERRISBURGH — The town of Ferrisburgh has placed on the market the 35-acre parcel it owns at the junction of Routes 7 and 22A, just outside Vergennes, with an asking price of $375,000.

The price might have been higher for an open site with permitted wastewater capacity, level topography, high traffic volume, easy access to rail transportation and frontage on two of the state’s busiest highways.

But despite those pluses the land, zoned industrial with retail uses conditionally permitted, does come with some baggage for potential buyers.

COCO's plan sent back to ZBA

Posted on September 16, 2010 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



FERRISBURGH — In the wake of a new Environmental Court ruling, the Ferrisburgh Zoning Board of Adjustment will almost certainly handle this fall an amended Champlain Oil Co. (COCO) application for a Route 7 gas station, convenience store and fast-food restaurant.

On Sept. 8, Environmental Court Judge Thomas Durkin made a site visit and then issued a decision that COCO, a South Burlington firm that operates a string of similar facilities, must go back to the ZBA with its proposal to increase the acreage in its application.

FERRISBURGH — Champlain Oil Company’s proposal for a Ferrisburgh gas station large enough to handle truck traffic and including a convenience store and fast-food restaurant will return to Environmental Court on Sept. 7.

Markowski runs again for a Vergennes-area Vermont House seat

Posted on August 23, 2010 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



FERRISBURGH — If voters in the five towns of the Addison-3 district value persistence, maybe this could be the year for Ferrisburgh Democrat Liz Markowski.

Markowski, 61, a businesswoman who played a key role in the late-1990s revitalization of downtown Vergennes, has put her name before voters three times in seeking one of Addison-3’s two seats in the Vermont House of Representatives — in 2002, 2004 and 2006.

Fresh Air celebrates summer

Posted on August 16, 2010 |
By Andrea Suozzo



web_freshairpicnic.jpg

FERRISBURGH — At Button Bay State Park on Monday evening, a dozen small children ran around in swimsuits and bare feet, unfazed by the steady rain.

Andrea Viera of Lincoln smiled and looked across the crowd to Elias Stedman, a seven-year-old from Brooklyn, N.Y., who is finishing up a two-week stay in Vermont sponsored by the Fresh Air Fund. For two days after he arrived, she said, Elias kept his shoes on, but after watching Viera’s three children, Kayla, Jake and Nate, walk around shoeless, he decided to try it as well.

“Now he’s barefoot all the time,” she said.

Ferrisburgh to evaluate zoning position

Posted on August 9, 2010 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



FERRISBURGH — After learning on Tuesday in a letter from interim Ferrisburgh zoning administrator Thomas Mansfield that he would leave at the end of 2010, selectmen decided to meet on Aug. 17 with Mansfield and the heads of the town’s planning and zoning boards to discuss the position’s job description and hours.

Mansfield, who works half-time in Charlotte, agreed to step in and work just four hours a week plus meeting time in Ferrisburgh.

FERRISBURGH — Ferrisburgh selectmen on Tuesday took steps to open public discussion about the town’s possible purchase of one property and — in a move they say is related — to list for sale a town-owned 9.37-acre parcel next to the Agency of Transportation’s Route 22A commuter lot.

The potential purchase — subject to voter approval in November — is of a home and 2.01 acres next to the town office building on Route 7. The land lies south and west of the Grange Hall lot and also abuts Ferrisburgh Central School.
