Notice of Discontinuance of a Certain Section and Acceptance of an Alternate Section of Chubb HIll Rd, Cavendish Town Highway #26
The Board of Selectmen of the Town of Cavendish will meet to conduct a site visit of the lower portion of Chubb Hill Road to examine the old highway and a proposed new section of that town highway at 5 PM on Monday, August 19, 2013. Immediately following the site visit, the Selectmen will travel to and reconvene their meeting at the Cavendish Town Office Meeting Room for the purpose of conducting a hearing and to consider:
• Discontinuance of the old section of Chubb Hill Road beginning at the existing intersection of the Chubb Hill Road with Vermont Route 131 by the Davis Homestead and extending approximately 487' up the road.
• Acceptance of a new section of Chubb Hill Road, which would begin at a point on Route 131, 420' east of the old intersection and would extend approximately 200' north to join the existing Chubb Hill Road.
This proposed discontinuance and acceptance will achieve a relocation of the intersection of Town Highway #26 with the State Highway #131, which will substantially improve sight distances and safety for the traveling public. The Town of Cavendish received a permit from the Vermont Agency of Transportation on July 15, 2013 for this proposed change of access for Chubb Hill Road to Vermont Route 131.
Interested parties are advised that transportation to the site visit and to the hearing will be their own responsibility. The purpose of site visitation is to inspect both the old and new subject road segments but not to hear testimony which, instead, should be offered at the hearing, which immediately follows the site visit.
The acceptance and discontinuance proceedings shall be conducted in accordance with the statutory requirements specified in VSA Title 19. The acceptance and discontinuance orders shall be recorded by the Town Clerk.
