Municipal Planning Grant

The Town of Mount Holly applied for and received a Municipal Planning Grant from the State of Vermont Agency of Commerce and Community Development. The Select Board contracted with Community Roots, LLC, led by Melissa Levy, to identify and understand community concerns related to housing, economic development, and public infrastructure.

Our first step to the grant is doing community outreach.  A survey has been created to collect data to help steer the grant objectives.  Surveys will be collected through 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.

Printed copies of the survey will be available at, and can be returned to, the Town Office and the Town Library.

We have a number of community members with deep ties volunteering to help guide the project and chipping in to help keep costs down.

Jeff Chase is the Municipal Authorizing Official for the Select Board. Jon McCann is helping with administration. Many thanks to Andy Bolalek, Russ Garrow, Anna Hanson, Kevin Hollebeek, Lisa Kelley, David Martin, and Faith Tempest for stepping up to help.
