In the absence of county government, the Windham Regional Commission provides the essential link between local, state and federal government.  Join them for a wide array of presentations, public forums, and functions as they seek to publicize this key link.

The Commission serves the 27 towns of the Windham Region in Windham, Windsor, and Bennington counties.  Our mission is to assist towns in Southeastern Vermont to provide effective local government and work cooperatively with them to address regional issues.  Towns choose to be members of the WRC.

Preserving Guilford’s Character 11/2/23

  • Guilford’s Town Plan, 2022-2030, states in the ‘Settlements and Land Use’ section that “residents envision a town that maintains its rural character; protects its natural resources..” This aspiration is deeply rooted in residents’ love of Guilford, its history and its land.
  • Recently much attention has been drawn to the housing shortage in Vermont. The state is actively exploring means to expand housing availability. Potentially this could mean that there is interest in increasing the housing stock in Guilford. As a community we would be better positioned to preserve what is cherished by learning what tools Towns can employ to shape growth.
  • The public is invited to an information seminar: “Preserving Guilford’s Character: What are our tools?” presented by Matt Bachler, Senior Planner, Windham Regional Commission on Thursday, November 2 at 6:30 pm at the Broad Brook Community Center. He will review Act 250 requirements, current trends in Land Use Regulation in Vermont, regulatory and non-regulatory means available to towns to guide growth and development.
