Project Overview

The Town of North Hero has received a Municipal Planning Grant from the Vermont Agency of Commerce and Community Development to develop a Village Master Plan.   The exploratory project aims to engage the community in defining appropriate options for bicyle and pedestrian safety improvements to support the people who work, live or come to the Village daily in addition to seasonal visitors. This plan will identify potential site-specific and appropriate safety improvements through infrastructure and streetscaping in the North Hero Village.


This project is guided by a Project Steering Committee of North Hero representatives and lead by Northwest Regional Planning Commission in conjunction with Vanasse Hangen Brustlin, Inc.

Project Milestones

The project will consist of a two-week virtual Open House that will provide feedback into the development of a Master Plan for the Village.  The Plan will outline potential public space improvements and rough cost estimates that can serve as a basis for future capital improvement planning.

Open House

July 22, 2020 - Aug 5, 2020

The purpose of the open house is to clarify the community’s vision and level of support for potential pedestrian and bicycle safety improvements in the Village District, and to receive feedback on a variety of potential options.
