Town Plan

Mount Holly’s current Town Plan was adopted on October 9, 2018.


Proposed Town Plan

The Town of Mount Holly is proposing to update the Town Plan. 

The Plan was developed over three years of twice monthly meetings by the Planning Commission with the participation of engaged citizens. The Plan is informed by residents’ responses to the town’s 2022 Community Vision Survey, which among other things demonstrated overwhelming consensus among residents on the importance of preserving our rural character, working lands, and natural environment. These attributes are seen as vital to community well-being and the local economy. The Planning Commission also solicited input from those knowledgeable about and responsible for delivering vital services to the community, including the school, the volunteer fire department, the library, and other organizations in the town. Finally, the Planning Commission consulted with the Vermont League of Cities and Towns, the Rutland Regional Planning Commission, and various State agencies, to be sure that the updated plan meets all of the State’s many requirements to be valid and effective.

On November 15, 2023, the Planning Commission held a public hearing at the Town Office and via Zoom to receive public comment on the proposed Plan. The hearing was well attended. The comments received were carefully considered and the Planning Commission revised the proposed Plan accordingly. On November 29, the Planning Commission unanimously voted to approve the proposed Plan. On December 1, it was submitted to the Select Board for a second public hearing and to the Town Clerk for public display and review.

Copies of the proposed plan are also available in the town office.
