Local students helped the town in June in implementing a new method of protecting trees from beavers. Using material known as “Beaver Paint” — a mixture of latex paint and sand — students painted on the bottom 3 feet of trees to prevent beavers from removing them. More than 15 trees were painted near the Southridge neighborhood.

    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.
