We need to hear your opinions!

Selectboard members Christy Witters and Roger Brown want you to come to a community listening session about policing in Richmond, on Tuesday, May 29th at 7:00 PM in the Town Center Meeting Room.  The Richmond Selectboard is conducting outreach to understand policing in Richmond today, and hear the community’s comments, concerns and priorities for how we provide policing in the future.  As you know, Chief Buck is retiring next month, and we’ll be having an interim chief of police manage the department while we discuss these very important issues.  The community needs to come together and ask the difficult questions and find the answers together, and Roger and Christy want to kick off that process next week.  We look forward to seeing you then, and if you have any questions, please call Geoffrey Urbanik, Town Manager, at 434-5170.

A Regional Concerns Meeting for the replacement of the US Route 2 bridge over Interstate 89 just east of the Richmond Fire Department will be held on Monday, June 11th, 2018 beginning at 7:00 PM at the Richmond Town Center Meeting Room, located at 203 Bridge Street in Richmond, VT.  The meeting will be held by the Vermont Agency of Transportation (VTrans) and the Town of Richmond.

The preferred alternative includes maintaining traffic on the existing structure while a new bridge is constructed off-alignment.

The intent of the meeting is to provide an overview of this project to Town Officials, local residents and businesses, emergency services and other interested parties. There will be a review of the existing site conditions, proposed work, and overall schedule followed by a question and answer period.  Representatives from both VTrans and the Town of Richmond will be available at the meeting to address public concerns about the project.

A copy of the Scoping Report for this project may be seen at the office of the Town Clerk in Richmond, Vermont or at the Structures Section of the Agency of Transportation’s office in Montpelier, Vermont.  An electronic copy is also available online at:  https://outside.vermont.gov/agency/vtrans/external/Projects/Structures/16A183.

UPDATED 5-11-2018 – Dugway Road is now OPEN

 

Dugway Road was hit hard by the storm on the evening of May 4th. To repair the damage, the culvert will be replaced and the retaining wall reset, and the gravel repaired. This will require a road closure of 3-4 days to complete, at roughly 1187 Dugway Road – near the RLT access. The road is closed as of May 8th at 9:00 AM and is expected to reopen by end of business on May 11th. If you have questions, you may call the Highway Garage at 434-2631.

The Richmond Parade & Fireworks Committee held a public planning meeting a couple of weeks ago. The meeting was well attended and it seems like there is enough interest and volunteers to continue with the July 4th celebration in Richmond this year.

However, we still need many more volunteers to get involved and make a commitment to help out. Whether you would like to help out on the day of the event, or if you are able to help with planning ahead of time, any level of participation and time commitment is welcome.

For those of you who are interested but were unable to attend the meeting, we have set up an online signup form. If you have something to suggest or offer that isn’t on the sign up form, please add it in the comments. Please share the form with anyone you think might be interested in helping out: https://goo.gl/forms/30r5JvozAlVBJ5ex1
