NOTICE Town of Stratton Board of Selectmen Pursuant to law, notice is hereby given that the Stratton Board of Selectmen will hold a Public Hearing in the Stratton Town Office in Stratton, Vermont at 7:30p.m. on Monday, December 14, 2020, at which time all persons interested in the following matter will be heard: The Legislative Public Hearing to consider the adoption of the Stratton Town Plan (2020). This document affects the entire Town of Stratton. Copies of the Stratton Town Plan 2020 are available to be reviewed at the Town Office Monday through Thursday from 9 a.m. till 3 p.m. or on the Stratton Town website: www.townofstrattonvt.com Background and Summary of the Amendment The proposed Town Plan Adoption seeks to meet the statutory requirements for this process. This update is focused on the recently required element regarding Flood Resilience. This section was updated to meet statutory requirements. With this addition, the Stratton Town Plan is consistent with 24 V.S.A. 4384. Additionally, the Land Use section was revised to reflect current Zoning Regulations. Changes to the Land Use Districts extend proposed Conservation Districts to all areas of the Town over 2500' in elevation (with exception of a small developed area within CR1). A proposed Conservation District also extends across Rte. 100 in the southern portion of the Town, to include a designated Bear Corridor. In regard to 24 V.S.A. 4384(c) (1) through (5) requirements: The impact of these District changes regarding traffic, the municipal tax base and need for public facilities are extremely minimal or nonexistent, as most areas were already limited in their potential for development. The benefit to the Town is inherent to the preservation of its forests and wildlife and the impact on other similarly designated areas is minimal, with exception of wildlife area continuity. These changes are appropriate and suitable for these designated areas, as they also have been identified by ANR and have similar restrictions in place, due to elevation or wildlife habitat requirements. Due to the nature of the proposed District changes, no alternative locations have been proposed. An alternative use of these lands considered was to retain their current Zoning Districting as "Public" or "Residential," as applicable. A Public Hearing was held by the Stratton Planning Commission on October 28, 2020. No amendments were made. The proposed Town Plan was forwarded to the Stratton Selectmen for Legislative Review on October 29, 2020 STRATTON TOWN PLAN (2020) SUMMARY PART 1 INTRODUCTION PART 2 GOALS, OBJECTIVES, AND POLICIES Goal 1: SETTLEMENT PATTERNS Goal 2: ECONOMIC GROWTH Goal 3: EDUCATION Goal 4: TRANSPORTATION Goal 5: NATURAL AND HISTORIC FEATURES Goal 6: LAND, WATER, AND AIR RESOURCES Goal 7: ENERGY Goal 8: RECREATION Goal 9: AGRICULTURE AND FORESTRY Goal 10: EARTH AND MINERAL RESOURCES Goal 11: HOUSING Goal 12: PUBLIC FACILITIES AND SERVICES Goal 13: CHILDCARE Goal 14: FLOOD RESILIENCE PART 3 TOWN PLAN ELEMENTS LAND USE PLAN EXISTING LAND USE PROPOSED LAND USE DISTRICTS NATURAL AND HISTORIC RESOURCES COMMUNITY FACILITIES AND SERVICES PLAN TRANSPORTATION PLAN HOUSING ELEMENT ENERGY PLAN ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT FLOOD RESILIENCE PLAN PART 4 HISTORY OF THE TOWN OF STRATTON PART 5 IMPLEMENTATION OF THE TOWN PLAN PART 6 COMPATIBILITY PART 7 DEFINITIONS PART 8 MAPS Dated November 12, 2020 Albert Dupell, Chair Stratton Board of Selectmen AD# 53056 11/14/2020
