LOST AND NOT FOUND:  OUTER LIMITS SIGNS MISSING from Stone Meadow’s new multi-use trail (yes, bikes are allowed on this trail).   

Each sign costs $35.00, and we don’t have the funds in the budget to replace them.  We don’t want to close the trail to bikes because of lack of signage.   

If you have seen the three missing signs, please let the Conservation Commission know where you spotted them.  You can leave a message with the Town Clerk’s Office at 802-446-2336.   

So take a hike or a bike on Outer Limits and look for the signs.  Your eyesight is probably better than ours!  We’ll treat you to the cupcake or pastry of your choice from the Sweet Birch Coffee Roasters & Baker on South Main Street for information leading to the safe return of the missing signs.  Have fun and keep your eyes peeled.

On October 15, 2021 the Legislative Apportionment Board completed the first phase of its detailed review of the impact of the 2020 U.S. Census population changes in Vermont towns and cities, and on the existing legislative districts. The Apportionment Board’s focus is on assuring that the population of legislative districts is substantially equal. Population changes require changes to many legislative district boundaries to achieve that.

The Board has released a “tentative” Vermont House of Representatives legislative district (or districts) for your town and for all towns. If your town/city population is above a certain level, it has more than one district. The Board voted, 4-3, to tentatively propose 150 single-member House districts, i.e., one where there are no two-member districts. This is a “tentative” proposal because the Apportionment Board seeks comment, criticism and proposals from Boards of Civil Authority (BCAs) and does not decide on a final recommendation to the legislature until carefully considering town feedback. The Wallingford BCA will meet on Monday, November 8 at 6:30 p.m. at Town Hall to take up this discussion.
