Posted on September 3, 2012 |
By John Flowers



MIDDLEBURY — The Middlebury selectboard is seeking some changes in a proposed zoning designation for an area along the Middlebury River following an outcry from East Middlebury residents who contend the new zone will limit development and hurt their property values.

The planning commission began working on the proposed zoning amendments in 2010, following a Vermont Agency of Natural Resources (ANR) review by the town’s administration of its flood hazard area regulations under the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP).

MIDDLEBURY — Dominic and Molly Francis have been providing lodging to weary travelers and nourishment to hungry diners at the Shoreham Inn for almost nine years.

Now the couple wouldn’t mind turning the tables and becoming customers of the historic landmark inn that has become just as beloved to locals as it has to tourists, cyclists and sightseers. They are in the process of selling it.

“We are just ready to take on some other opportunities,” Molly Francis said last Thursday morning during a brief break from her kitchen duties.

MIDDLEBURY — The Vermont Hard Cider Company announced today that it will delay the start of construction on a new $24 million cidery until 2013. VTHCC had hoped to begin construction at a site on Exchange Street in Middlebury this summer but officials said the permitting, engineering, design and bidding process has taken longer than expected.

VTHCC is nearing completion of these preliminary hurdles, they said. However, to start a project of this magnitude and scope just as the ground is beginning to freeze could further complicate construction budgets and timetables.

One year later, Bristol Administrator Bill Bryant said the town’s infrastructure and finances are in good shape. He credited the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and the Vermont Agency of Transportation (VTrans), among others, for aiding in the recovery.
