VTrans Hosts Public Meetings on Circ Draft EIS
VTrans will hold two public hearings Thursday, October 4, for citizens to comment on the recently published Circ-Williston Draft EIS. The first meeting will take place from 1:00 to 4:00pm at the Champlain Valley Expo. An evening meeting will also be held at 6:30pm at the Williston Central School Auditorium. For more detailed information on the hearings, visit the VTrans website.
The Circ-Williston Draft EIS examines the potential ecological, environmental and safety impacts of the build and no-build alternatives. Review of the Draft EIS and public comments are an important part of the process in deciding the fate of the proposed circumferential highway. The Conservation Law Foundation, a member of the Vermont Smart Growth Collaborative, has coordinated a Circ public awareness campaign. You can visit their website to find more information about the issue. The Circ-Williston Draft EIS is also available for complete viewing and downloading at the VTrans website.
