Town of Starksboro - survey

Question Title

* 1. Salvage yards/Junkyards: Should Starksboro adopt the State’s regulations regarding “salvage/junkyards” (4 or more vehicles that have not been used or registered for 3 months or more, etc.)? If yes, how would you propose the town enforce such a regulation? Should Starksboro consider implementing a junk/refuse ordinance?

Question Title

* 2. Electric Vehicle charging stations: As these charging stations become more popular and necessary to support the growing number of electric vehicles on the roads, the town needs to add language to the Bylaws to address the review of placement, signage, and other factors related to this growing need.

What regulations or permitting requirements do you see as necessary for Starksboro to consider?

Question Title

* 3. Wood processing operations: Firewood processing and tree service operations are a part of the Vermont working landscape like farms and agricultural businesses.

b.     How can the town best balance the needs of residential and commercial landowners? (e.g. sound trespass, visual presentation such as screening, etc.)

Question Title

Note: The Vermont League of Cities and Towns advised local municipalities and towns to think about how to prepare for and anticipate this growth area in local zoning. While the State is still determining what the marketplace will look like in Vermont, much of the implementation will occur on the local level and towns will need to be ready to review applications for businesses and growing facilities.
