Bristol Town Plan 2020

“A plan is a vision, a vision tempered by reality and a course of action.”

The Municipal Plan provides a framework toward attaining community aspirations through public investments, land use regulations, and other implementation programs.

In Vermont, municipal plans are necessary to:

  • Empower local decisions by making it possible to adopt Zoning and Subdivision regulations
  • Influence state regulatory proceedings like Act 250 applications and Section 248 Certificate of Public Good
  • Qualify and receive priority for certain state and federal programs

Bristol’s Town Plan was last updated in 2012 and amended in 2017 (Plan here and maps here). Addison County Regional Planning Commission staff have been working with the Bristol Planning Commission, Energy Committee, and Conservation Commission to update the plan to meet state requirements.

The Bristol Planning Commission has been working on updating the Town Plan and has forwarded a draft plan to the Bristol Select Board.
