Public hearing set for All Metals relocation

Meeting Thursday, Aug. 28

All Metals Recycling, currently located on James Brown Drive, is looking to move its salvage yard operation to Avenue B off Industrial Avenue.
A public hearing is set for Thursday, Aug. 28 at 6 p.m. at the Town Hall.
All Metals needs a certificate of approved location before it can obtain the proper state license to open a salvage yard in town, which requires a public hearing.
The board went through a similar process last September when it approved the James Brown Drive location. All Metals Recycling opened that facility after nearly two years of appeals from nearby residents and another salvage yard.
The Development Review Board approved All Metals’ request for a discretionary permit at its July 22 meeting.
All Metals Recycling is proposing a scrap metal recycling business on a .72 acre portion of an S.D. Ireland property near the end of Avenue B.

    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.
