In accordance with 24 V.S.A. §§4441, 4444, the Selectboard of the Town of Springfield will hold a public hearing on October 24, 2022 at 6 p.m. at Town Hall at 96 Main Street in Springfield, VT, to receive comments on proposed amendments to the zoning bylaws.  This is the second, and possibly final, public hearing on these proposed amendments.  The purpose of these proposed amendments can be summarized as follows:

  • The primary reasons for amendments are to merge the subdivision and zoning regulations into one document, clarify the permitting process, update the flood hazard standards and procedures to make them more easily understandable, make changes that encourage downtown revitalization, and clarify standards and address statutory requirements.

The proposed amendments affect the entire jurisdiction of the Town of Springfield.

The table of contents of the proposed zoning bylaws is as follows: 

TABLE OF CONTENTS
ARTICLE I. - IN GENERAL
ARTICLE II. - ESTABLISHMENT OF ZONING DISTRICTS AND DISTRICT STANDARDS
ARTICLE III. - SPECIFIC USE STANDARDS
ARTICLE IV. - GENERAL REGULATIONS
ARTICLE V. - SIGNS
ARTICLE VI. - STREAMS AND SURFACE WATERS
ARTICLE VII. - DEVELOPMENT REVIEW
ARTICLE VIII. - PLANNED UNIT DEVELOPMENT
ARTICLE IX. - FLOOD HAZARD REVIEW PROCEDURE

The full text of the proposed zoning amendments as well as the written report on the proposal is available to review at the Springfield Town Clerk’s Office during normal business hours.
