Final Community Workshop - Re-Imagining Essex's Planning Governance 01/13/2016

After months of studying how planning governance in Essex works today and how it could be improved, the Working Group for Thoughtful Growth in Action (TGIA) presents its findings and recommendations.

The Working Group’s recommendations will head to the Town Selectboard and Village Trustees in February 2016. The two boards will have a joint meeting in March to discuss the recommendations.

Currently, the Town of Essex and Village of Essex Junction have separate planning commissions and zoning boards of adjustment. TGIA formed around the belief that the community wants to move toward a shared Essex vision that simultaneously honors and builds in the unique characteristics of the Village and Town outside the Village.
