Public meeting set for Exit 12 study

The Williston Planning Commission is set to host a public meeting regarding proposed alternatives to address congestion and safety issues at Interstate 89 Exit 12 and Vermont Route 2A. The meeting is set for Oct. 1 at 7 p.m. at the Williston Town Hall.

The Chittenden County Regional Planning Commission, along with a task force comprised of planning, town and safety officials, has developed transportation alternatives to accommodate existing and projected traffic conditions, enhance safety for all users, improve bike-pedestrian connections from areas south of the interchange to the existing network north of the interchange and support economic growth in the study area. The study area includes the Exit 12 interchange and the Vermont 2A corridor from south of Hurricane Lane to the north of Marshall Avenue. The Study is sponsored by the CCRPC and the town.

For more information about the study, visit www.ccrpcvt.org/exit12.

 

Girl Scout bottle drive

Williston Girl Scout Troop 30821 will run a bottle drive from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Oct. 5 in Williston. Residents who will not be home on that date can leave bottles on the curb. Call Meghan Mathon at 879-9503 to arrange pick-up.

 

Legislative internship program for girls

High school age girls with an interest in government service and advocacy are invited to apply for Girls Rock the Capitol, a legislative internship led by Girl Scouts of the Green and White Mountains. No Girl Scout experience is needed.

This intensive program links girls to female legislators who act as mentors, while girls learn about and work on issues affecting the future of Vermont from inside the State House.

The program is intended to help girls become critical thinkers, work as a team to advocate for themselves and others, prepare for leadership roles in their schools and communities, and have a rich understanding of the Green Mountain State democratic process.

To apply, contact Nicole Nolan toll-free at 1-888-474-9686, ext. 142 or [email protected] Applications are due Oct. 31.
