The Greensboro Planning Commission (GPC) has issued a formal notice that it will hold a public hearing on Wednesday, June 2, 2021 at 6:00 p.m. for the purpose of hearing public comment on the GPC’s proposed amendments to the Greensboro Zoning Bylaw. A copy of the GPC’s formal notice for its public hearing is posted on the GPC’s page on the Town’s website and can be accessed here: https://www.greensborovt.org/wp-content/uploads/2021/04/20210422140051.pdf

Additional links to the virtual meeting (e.g., via one tap mobile) are listed in the
GPC’s formal notice of the public hearing.
Written comments may also be submitted to the GPC via email to [email protected] or mailed to the Town of Greensboro, PO Box 119, Greensboro, VT 05819.
The proposed amendments to the Greensboro Zoning Bylaw are primarily focused on properties that are within the Shoreland Protection District, which includes the Shoreland Buffer Resource Zone. (There are also several miscellaneous amendments to other sections of the Greensboro Zoning Bylaw.)
The GPC has prepared a written report that summarizes the proposed amendments and explains the GPC’s reasons for proposing same. The GPC’s report, and the text of the proposed amendments, are posted on the GPC’s page on the Town’s website (currently as the last bulleted item under the subheading “Greensboro Information” on that page) and can be accessed here:
With respect to the legislative process and schedule that we anticipate the Town will follow in regard to these proposed amendments, we note the following:
- After its June 2, 2021 public hearing, and after considering the comments made at that hearing, the GPC may make changes to the proposed amendments to the Greensboro Zoning Bylaw and then submit those amendments to the Select Board. However, if the GPC makes significant changes to the proposed amendments, then the GPC will likely hold another public hearing thereon (warned at least two weeks in advance) before submitting the amendments to the Select Board.
- Before the Select Board votes to approve the amendments, the Select Board will hold a public hearing thereon (warned at least two weeks in advance) to gather public input.
- After that public hearing, if the Select Board votes to make significant changes to the amendments, then the Select Board will submit those changes to the GPC, which would then hold another public hearing thereon (warned at least two weeks in advance). If the GPC then approves those proposed changes, it would then forward the amendments to the Select Board, which would hold a public hearing thereon (warned at least two weeks in advance) before approving them.
- Once approved by the Select Board, the proposed amendments will likely be submitted to a Town vote.
