Williston Central School students from Tad Dippel’s fifth and sixth grade science class take to the banks of the Allen Brook to plant a variety of trees and plants for environmental restoration. Dippel’s class spent Tuesday afternoon digging holes and planting trees with the help of town planning staff and the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service.  See story below.

    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.
