Essex County free “Weatherization for All” Button Up

Island Pond, Vermont—On Saturday, October 14th from 10 AM to 1 PM, Island Pond & the Town of Brighton are hosting one of Button Up Vermont’s annual campaign events. This event’s theme is Weatherization for All: Programs & Resources for Making Efficiency Affordable. The event will be held at the Brighton Town Hall Gymnasium.

Northeastern Vermont Development Association (NVDA), Energy Committees and Energy Partners from across the NEK have worked together to offer a free, family-friendly, and affordability-focused event to everyone interested in energy efficiency. A panel of representatives from HEAT Squad, NETO, NEKCA, RuralEdge, Efficiency Vermont, VPPSA, and VEC will provide information on incentives, rebates, grants, and programs for homeowners, renters, and landlords, alike. This is the opportunity to ask questions such as “How can I afford to weatherize?”, “Is it worth the time and cost?”, and “Where do I start?”  

Local, seasonal refreshments, door prizes, and raffles will be provided. Guests have the chance to win a free home energy audit from HEAT Squad, gift cards to local hardware stores to encourage DIY weatherization, and more. After the main event, all guests are invited to explore Island Pond  and the breathtaking fall foliage display at its peak. “Our restaurants are ready to serve you a delicious lunch before you tackle the Bluff Mountain Community Hiking Trail which provides a fantastic view of our beautiful lake decorated in autumn colors. It is easily accessible from our downtown and a favorite amongst all our visitors,” said Mike Strait, the town’s Director of Recreation and Economic Development as well as its Energy Coordinator. “As Brighton, and most of Essex County, register the coldest temperatures in Vermont throughout the winter, the cost of heating our homes is a significant portion of everyone’s budget making events like this especially helpful to our communities. We are excited to bring these resources to the people that need them most.”

“Energy costs are a significant burden to NEK households, and too often compete with other priorities such as food, housing, and healthcare,” said Allie Webster from NVDA, which offers energy planning support to towns across the region. “You will not want to miss this free and fun event that will cover affordable ways to cut down on your energy costs and have a more comfortable and healthier home.”

2024 Reappraisal Notice to Property Owners

The Town of Concord will complete a statistical, town-wide reappraisal for the 2024 Grand List. New England Municipal Consultants (NEMC) has been contracted to complete the process. The goal of any reappraisal is to create equity and fairness throughout an entire community. NEMC will be conducting property visits and inspections for purpose of data collection. We ask that if you are sent a notice for inspection to please allow for data to be verified and recollected. This process is in addition to annual permit and new construction visits conducted by NEMC. We appreciate all cooperation in our attempt to fairly list properties within the Town of Concord. 

The Town was last appraised in 2019 and has seen a shift in real estate values within the last few years. Statistically speaking, sales within the community have been trending outside of compliance with the State of Vermont’s assessment ratio threshold. It is important that the community address assessment inequities before the State mandates the process. A statistical reappraisal will address and equalize all properties within the community. NEMC will conduct a sales analysis from April 1, 2021 to April 1, 2024 to establish assessments town-wide.

We anticipate preliminary values will be released in late spring of 2024. All property owners will be mailed a new preliminary notice of value with instructions. NEMC will then host an informal hearing process designed to meet with property owners in an informational setting. The informal meetings are in addition to the annual grievance appeals directly to the Assessor. All property owners will be mailed a change of appraisal notice following the conclusion of the informal process.

Property owners are welcome to reach out to the Assessor’s Office at listers@concordvt.org with any questions or concerns.

Volunteer(s) Wanted:

Concord Transfer Station. The “Share Shack” will be a place that the Concord
Community and surrounding areas can leave items that are in decent shape for
others to take and use. It will be the responsibility of the Monitor to keep the
area tidy and to only accept items that can be reused. The hours of the “Share
Shack” will be the same as the Transfer Station hours, Tuesday 4pm to 6pm and
Saturdays 8am to 2pm.
