Large In-stream Culvert Replaced on Baltimore Road in Weathersfield

During the summer and fall of 2018, the Southern Windsor County Regional Planning Commission (SWCRPC) partnered with the Town of Weathersfield to replace an undersized, Irene damaged culvert conveying a stream under Baltimore Road. Replacing this crossing with a structure of adequate size will make Baltimore Road more resilient to future flooding events. It will also reduce recurring maintenance costs to the Town and improve water quality and stream stability. Funding for this project was provided by a grant through the Vermont Clean Water Initiative Program, with local match provided by the Town of Weathersfield.

Please contact Ed Morris or Chris Yurek with any questions.

Regional Energy Plan Adopted

The SWCRPC developed a Regional Energy Plan to comply with Act 174 related standards.  The plan contains an energy analysis, maps of regional resources and constraints, regional energy targets, and strategies needed to achieve the energy goals.  It was adopted on June 25, 2018 after two duly-warned public hearings. It becomes effective on July 30, 2018. The plan can be downloaded in the Publications section of our website.  The SWCRPC has submitted the plan to the Department of Public Service for a determination of energy compliance pursuant to Act 174 and 24 V.S.A. §4352. A public hearing is being planned for 6 pm on September 4th.  Please contact Jason for more information.
