The Town of
The town of Bolton is located in the western foothills of the Green Mountains, on the eastern edge of the Lake Champlain Valley. The Winooski River bisects the town from east to west, as does Interstate 89, the New England Central Railway and U.S. Route 2. Chartered in June 1763, Bolton is a small rural municipality that prides itself on many unique aspects: It is a tight-knit community with acres of forested land bisected by recreational trails, majestic ridgelines, rugged rocky outcrops, and valley-bottom cropland, all tucked in between working landscapes and our beloved Green Mountains.
2017 BOLTON TOWN PLAN
The CCRPC worked with the Town of Bolton to write the 2017 Bolton Town Plan. The project wasfunded by a 2016 Municipal Planning Grant from the Department of Housing and Community Development. Bolton’s town planning process was also chosen as a pilot project for testing the Department’s new Planning Manual. An advisory group made up of CCRPC staff, DHCD employees and Bolton residents guided the process and provided feedback on implementation of the new planning manual. This partnership, which also enabled Bolton to complete an extensive community engagement process, extended through plan adoption in May 2017.
