Planning Survey at the Greensboro Bend Post Office

Our apologizes to the folks in Greensboro Bend.  We had thought that the paper copy of the surveys has been dropped off last week to the Post Office.  They are now there and you can either drop them off at the Town Clerk’s Office or put them in the manila envelope there.  They will be collected frequently.  Thank you for your patience.

Greensboro Planning Commission Survey

What do YOU see – What do YOU want Greensboro to be?  Please take the Greensboro Community Survey

The Town of Greensboro was recently awarded a Municipal Planning Grant by the Vermont Agency of Commerce and Community Development.  The purpose of the grant is to help the Planning Commission gain insight into the planning and land use issues important to the town.  One of the methods of gathering information is through the attached survey.  The input from the survey will be used in writing the new Town Plan, so please, this is the time to voice your opinions on what you would like to see in your community.   

Paper copies of the survey are also available at the following locations:

Greensboro Town Clerk’s Office; Smith’s Grocery; Willey’s Store; Greensboro Free Library; Greensboro Post Office’ Greensboro Bend Post Office; Four Seasons of Early Learning; and Greensboro United Church of Christ.

After reviewing the results of the survey, the Planning Commission will conduct topic-specific focus groups and general discussion community forums before siting down to write the new Town Plan.
