Public Notice – Hazard Mitigation Planning

The Town of Stockbridge is in the process of updating its Local Hazard Mitigation Plan. Local Hazard Mitigation Plans enable towns to qualify for grant funds, and they make our communities safer. The third Stockbridge Hazard Mitigation planning meeting is scheduled during the Town Selectboard Meeting on Thursday, October 7, 2021 at 7:00 p.m. at the Town Clerk’s Office, 1722 VT Route 100, Stockbridge, VT 05772. 

The meeting is open to all interested community members. 

Local Hazard Mitigation Plans are part of an effort by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to reduce damage from foreseeable natural and human-caused hazards. For more information, please contact Jake Palant at jpalant@trorc.org

Burn Permits

Vermont State law requires you to have in your possession a permit from the town’s fire warden before any open burning is done. The permit only allows you to burn untreated wood. Small campfires in an enclosure would not require a permit. Town of Stockbridge Forest Fire Warden, Dave Brown – (802)353-9392
