Notch Road Closure! A section of Notch Road will be closed on Monday, June 26, 2017 – Wednesday, June 28, 2017 for a culvert replacement.  The closure is in the vicinity of 3132 Notch Road – there will be NO THROUGH traffic possible, including OVERNIGHT.  Residents living north of the work area will have to exit Bolton to the north.  Access up Notch Road from Route 2 will only be possible up to the work site.  Again, there will be no THROUGH TRAFFIC possible, including OVERNIGHT.  Thank you for your patience as the town completes this critical drainage work. 


The Bolton Planning Commission is looking for one new member, preferably from the either the Rt. 2 or Duxbury Road neighborhoods. The PC just finished the 2017 Bolton Town Plan and are getting ready to begin revising the Bolton Land Use and Development Regulations (BLUDRs).  The BLUDRs combine zoning regulations, subdivision regulations and flood hazard area regulations.  If you are interested in participating in local government, contributing to the zoning process, and/or helping the town plan growth and protect its natural resources, contact Carol Devlin at or 434-3064 ext. 221.

Employment Opportunities!  The town is seeking a part-time summer road crew person averaging 8 hours per week, and a part-time year round board clerk averaging 8 hours per month.  See the job descriptions here.

UPDATED! Route 2 Bridge Over Snipe Island Brook in Richmond to close 4 weeks in July/August

The US Route 2 Bridge over Snipe Island Brook (next to Snipe Ireland Road in Richmond) north of Jonesville will be closed for four weeks this summer. The official motorist detour will be I89, with Cochran Road as the official detour for pedestrians and bicyclists.  VTrans recognizes local traffic is likely to use Cochran Road. 

The VTrans expects to close the bridge for 28 days; July 21 – August 18, with one lane traffic in the construction zone for two weeks prior to, and two weeks after the closure.

No Library Card Reimbursements in FY 17-18

The voter approved FY 17-18 budget eliminated the library card re-imbursement line item, and shifted those funds to a recreation line item in the hopes of funding one or two town wide events open to all.  Library card re-imbursements will no longer be offered beginning at the start of the next fiscal year, July 1, 2017.  Both the Richmond and Waterbury Libraries have been notified of this change. Remember, you can always take a book, leave a book, 24/7 at any of our seven BOLLs! See the BOLL map  here.

Welcome to the Town of Bolton, Vermont


Town of BoltonWelcome to the Bolton, Vermont website.

The town of Bolton is located in the western foothills of the Green Mountains, on the eastern edge of the Lake Champlain Valley. The Winooski River bisects the town from east to west, as does Interstate 89, the New England Central Railway and U.S. Route 2.  Chartered in June 1763, Bolton is a small rural municipality that prides itself on many unique aspects: we are a tight-knit community with acres of forested land bisected by recreational trails, majestic ridge lines, rugged rocky outcrops, and valley-bottom cropland, all tucked in between working landscapes and our beloved Green Mountains.
