WILLISTON’S 250TH: Anniversary updates

Williston Moves Passport

Organizers of Williston Moves—a town-wide initiative as part of Williston’s 250th Healthy Challenge that encourages residents to get moving—have created a new way to get residents to raise their fitness levels.

The Williston Moves Passport allows residents to keep track of fitness activities they participated in. Residents can mark activities like walking, biking, golf, baseball, fitness classes, swimming and more, now through Labor Day. At the end of the summer, they can trade in the completed passport for awards, like discounts at local merchants.

The passport is available at the Williston Town Hall and on the town website, www.town.williston.vt.us.

    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.
