United Way of Chittenden County honored 48 local volunteers during the fifth annual Building Block Awards ceremony at the LIVE UNITED Breakfast, held Sept. 28 at the Flynn Center For The Performing Arts.

Williston residents honored included Dick and Sharon Nichols for their volunteer work with Cathedral Square and Sarah Simmons for her service as part of the Vermont Action Team of Planned Parenthood of Northern New England.

“This event is our opportunity to recognize the precious gifts of time and caring that advocates and volunteers offer our community. Volunteerism and advocacy leverage the gifts of resources from our donors and are critical elements of the work that we do. Time is a precious gift,” said Director of Community Impact Amy Carmola.

    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.
