Another government office may be coming to Williston

The General Services Administration (GSA) applied for and was recently granted an administrative permit through the Planning and Zoning Office to move into office space in the former Rossignol office building on Industrial Avenue, Town Planner Lee Nellis said.

The GSA aids in the basic functioning of a wide range of government services.

According to the GSA plans, the agency's Department of Homeland Security branch would occupy nearly 18,000 square feet of office space, and the agency's census branch would occupy nearly 6,500 square feet.

Nellis said much of the building is being reconfigured inside to make room for other offices. Part of the plans calls for a proposed entrance for GSA employees off Winter Sports Lane.

"Most of the entrances already exist, they will just be used for different purposes than when Rossignol was in there," Nellis said.

The Historic and Architectural Advisory Committee is scheduled to look at the plans on May 12 and the Development Review Board will most likely view the plans at its May 27 meeting.

    almost 3 decades ago when williston started it’s development review process the public works section was pushing for a wider roadway typical for residential streets. The town adopted 30 ft widths vs 24ft. That’s 6/24 (30%) additional impervious area and runoff that needs to treated before flowing into ALLEN BROOK. The town and selectboard have indicated a lack of interest to reach out and help communties like mine that have had expired stormwater permits for more then a decade. Its always been a wait and see, well I see where this headed now.
