This Memorial Day as I sat on my porch I realized how fortunate I am to be living in Vermont. As I sat there safe and free, my thoughts turned to my many family members and friends who had made timely sacrifices to make that feeling possible.

    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.
