Shoreline Zoning Project

In January 2013, the Planning Commission began a comprehensive look at the zoning regulations that guide development in the Shoreline District – i.e., the area around Lake Iroquois and Sunset Lake. The Planning Commission hasn’t discussed this part of town for many years, and zoning changes are recommended in the Town Plan.

So far, the discussion has focused on the boundaries of the district, property improvement/development, and water quality protection. In 2013 the Vermont Legislature discussed bills to better protect lakes and ponds statewide. None of these bills became law, but the discussion got media attention, and prompted statewide public outreach. This resulted in The Shoreland Protection Act that went into effect on July 1, 2014.

The Planning Commission wanted to hear from the community at large before it starts tinkering with and improving Hinesburg’s shoreline zoning regulations, so we created a survey and invited you to take it. And you did. Over 200 responses came in. Thank you! If you would like to read the results click the link below.
