The Town Plan provides a framework for decisions that will guide future growth and development in Bennington. Its statements, policies, and recommendations will help ensure that the town retains the attributes that residents value while promoting actions that enhance the
town’s character, prosperity, and overall quality of life.
The Town Plan was prepared and adopted pursuant to Title 24 V.S.A. Chapter 117, the Vermont Municipal and Regional Planning and Development Act. It contains all of the required elements and is consistent with all of the goals enumerated in that statute. Moreover, while this Plan is guided by the needs and desires of the Town of Bennington, care was taken to ensure that it is compatible with the Bennington Regional Plan, with the plans of the villages of Old Bennington and North Bennington, and with the plans of neighboring towns.
