The Town of
Geographically, Huntington is a beautiful mountainous town, with many streams and rivers, the largest being the Huntington River. Huntington is the home of Camels Hump, the third highest mountain peak in Vermont, a favorite hiking spot for many. From the top of the Hump is a breathtaking view of the Champlain Valley, and on a clear day, you can see as far as Montreal. Huntington, a post township in the southeast corner of Chittenden County, was chartered by Governor Wentworth to Edward Burling and others, in the name of New Huntington in June of 1763. New Huntington stretched from Starksboro and Buel’s Gore north to the Winooski River (at that time called the Onion River) near the Round Church. Subsequently, portions of the New Huntington township were parceled out to Richmond and Bolton by an act of the Vermont Legislature in 1794.
huntington town plan
The Huntington Planning Commission is working with CCRPC staff to update the 2014 Huntington Town Plan before its expiration in 2019. The updated plan will focus on incorporating the latest information on natural resources and recreation and will be an “enhanced energy plan,” giving it more weight during Public Utility Commission proceedings.

LOWER VILLAGE bicycle & pedestrian scoping study
The purpose of the Lower Village Bike/Ped Scoping Study is to identify potential bicycle and pedestrian improvement strategies for Huntington’s Lower Village to help improve transportation options and public safety. The combination of increased vehicle traffic and increased pedestrian and bicycle activity means the potential for dangerous conflict is growing. Implementation of recommendations from this study should alleviate these conditions.
