NORTH HERO PLANNING COMMISSION UPDATE
By Beverlee Poquette, Chair
The North Hero Planning Commission recently participated in a walk through the historic district of the village of North Hero in cooperation with representatives of the Northwest Regional Planning Commission. At that time, input was solicited about barriers and trouble spots to pedestrian, bicycle and vehicular traffic in town. As the Planning Commission moves to writing an updated draft of the Town Plan, we invite you to come to a Planning Commission meeting on Oct. 1, 2019, 6 p.m. to provide any additional comments you would like to make about the village center. The perspective of those who live and work in the village center is an important one to consider as we move forward.
The members will reserve the first 30 minutes of the meeting for any additional community comments regarding the village center.

NORTH HERO -- Lisa Keyworth has been named the new assistant town clerk for North Hero.
Keyworth will fill the slot previously held by Corinn Julow, who was elevated by the Selectboard to Town Clerk following the retirement of Pete Johnson last month.
She has lived in North Hero for 13 years with her husband Todd Keyworth and together they own and operate the Harborside Harvest Market on U.S. 2, known in part for its large selections of fudge, along with Vermont products and deli.
“Lisa brings a wealth of bookkeeping, IT, and customer service knowledge with her on this new venture,” Julow said in making the announcement.
Six people applied for the 30-hour a week post, Julow said. Four people were interviewed by Town Agent Marie Kilbride and Julow, who made the selection.
Keyworth starts work on Monday, September 16, Julow said.
