View the (Draft) Shaftsbury Enhanced Energy Plan
Posted: December, 19 2023
Prepared by: Bennington County Regional Commission. (BCRC)
This draft Enhanced Energy Plan (EEP)
was crafted by the Bennington County Regional Commission (BCRC), in partnership with the Shaftsbury Planning Commission (PC). It was presented to the public in a presentation in August 2023 and submitted to the Town in September 2023.
A citizen survey conducted by BCRC and the Commission informed the creation of this Plan, but only in part; on some issues, no clear citizen consensus could be discerned. Recommendations regarding those issues, which included siting, size, preferred sites, and others, were therefore not offered by the BCRC but left to the Shaftsbury Planning Commission to address.
The Planning Commission has been working on addressing those gaps. It will share its final proposed Enhanced Energy Plan in a series of public hearings to be held in late winter or early spring 2024.
