Notice of Public Hearing - Waltham Enhanced Energy Plan- July 11,2022 at 7:00 pm

The Waltham Select Board will hold a public hearing on Monday, July 11, 2022, at the Waltham Town Hall at 7p.m. to consider the adoption of an Amended Town Plan inclusive of an Enhanced Energy Plan. This hearing will be held pursuant to 24 V.S.A. §4384. This notice is issued pursuant to 24 V.S.A. §4444 (b).

This Enhanced Energy Plan (the “Plan”) is being proposed so that Waltham can obtain “substantial deference” in determining where energy projects should, and should not, be sited. The Plan contains provisions consistent with Vermont’s renewable energy laws and objectives—primary of which is to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The Plan was written to meet those objectives and to fulfill the requirements of Act 174 and the municipal determination standards for enhanced energy planning enabled in 24 V.S.A.§4352. The Plan is also consistent with the requirements of 24 V.S.A. § 4382(a)(9) for municipal development plans and 24 V.S.A.§4348a(a)(3) for Regional Plan energy elements. Together, these laws meet the Vermont municipal planning requirements of 24 VSA§4302.

This Plan includes:

• an analysis of energy resources, needs, scarcities, costs, and problems within the Town.

• a statement of policy on the conservation of energy.

• a statement of policy on the development of renewable energy resources.

• a statement of policy on patterns and densities of land use likely to result in conservation of energy. • targets for future energy use reduction and renewable generation.

• pathways, or implementation actions, to help the Town achieve the established targets providing goals, policies, and recommended actions to implement the Plan; and

• mapping and written descriptions to help guide determinations about the siting of renewable energy developments.

Copies of the proposed Plan may be obtained or viewed at the Waltham Town Clerk’s Office on Maple Street in Waltham. For further information, please call the Town Clerk’s Office at 802 877 3641 – office hours are 9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays.
