Architects have designed an 11,000-square-foot facility to be built by local businessman Kevin Harper on a site off West Street. Upon completion, the town hopes to purchase the building and a 9.03-acre parcel of land through a $3.19 million bond.

Stony Hill grant opens door for industrial park in Bristol

Posted on July 2, 2015 |
By John Flowers



BRISTOL — The town of Bristol has won a $25,000 federal grant that will allow the community to finally determine the development potential of a roughly 20-acre parcel of town-owned land on the western edge of the village.

The land in question is referred to as the “Stoney Hill property,” which the state of Vermont conveyed to Bristol for $1 more than two decades ago. The property has remained unused for lack of an access point and in the absence of planning funds to determine the extent to which it could be used to host light industry and businesses.

FERRISBURGH — Those involved in the dispute over Ferrisburgh farmer Wayne Stearns’ propane cannon talk about shattered dreams — and the shattered peace in a neighborhood along Lake Champlain.

ANwSU board members get initial look at unification law

Posted on June 29, 2015 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — Many members of the five Addison Northwest Supervisory Union boards and several residents of the five district towns gathered at Vergennes Union High School on Wednesday to hear a review of school governance and unification provisions in a new Vermont law — and how quickly ANwSU might have to take action.
