Austin Burbank, 16, of Williston Boy Scout Troop 692 delivered his Eagle Scout project to the Boys & Girls Club of Burlington on Jan. 2. He designed and built two carpetball tables, with a little assistance from other scouts and adults. Also as part of his project, the Champlain Valley Union High School junior coordinated with the club to determine what was needed. Carpetball is a tabletop game played with pool balls. It resembles bowling, with players taking turns rolling pool balls down the table to knock their opponents’ pool balls into a pocket.

    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.
