YOUR COMMUNITY, YOUR VOICE: A COMMUNITY VISION SURVEY
With support from the State of Vermont Agency of Commerce and Community Development, the Town of Mount Holly is engaging community members, businesses, and organizations to identify and understand community concerns related to housing, economic development, and public infrastructure.
Historically, Mount Holly has had many thriving hamlets. Due to land use and economic changes, only two areas remain with a development density to support public infrastructure: the Municipal Center and the Village of Belmont.
The Municipal Center is the functional center of our town and hosts government, education, highway, and emergency services. There is no way to avoid continued public investment in these facilities. However, as these facilities age, those costs are likely to rise. Aging or inadequate infrastructure presents a financial liability to the community.
The historic Village of Belmont is the cultural center of the town—home to our store, library, church, museum, public park, village green, bandstand, and two community assembly areas. Of course, it is where our beloved Cider Days is held. These are important assets that belong to all residents of Mount Holly—not just those who happen to have a Belmont mailing address.
This project aims to identify barriers to development in these two areas of town, consider methods of removing those barriers, and identify sources of funding that do not rely on local taxation. Key to this endeavor is community input. We will enlist input from community members, businesses and organizations through a survey, interviews and community meetings. We encourage all Mount Holly residents to participate in these efforts. This survey is just the first step.
|Please take the survey by pointing your smartphone camera at the image to the left or by visiting the following link:|
Printed copies will be available and can be returned at the Town Office and the Town Library. The survey will close on November 30th.
Your input is essential to this process. Answers will be anonymous and remain private. The results will be aggregated, compiled and presented as part of a report in the months to come. Your answers will guide us in maximizing the benefit to the community of our American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funds and other grant funding to address community challenges.
Thank you for your participation! If you have questions, please contact: [email protected]
