Beaudoin fill site still operating with Act 250 hearing

S.D. Ireland is officially appealing Milton’s Development Review Board approval of its community fill site, court documents show. Filed with the Vermont Superior Court – Environmental Division on August 16, the letter from CEO Scott Ireland serves as an official appeal of the July 27 decision, which approved the fill facility at Ted Beaudoin’s farm at 262 Middle Rd. The letter doesn’t state why Ireland would appeal the town’s approval of the project. “It is unusual, but sometimes these decisions have a lot of conditions,” town planning director Victor Sinadinoski said. “While it was permitted, they didn’t agree with...

Green Mountain Habitat opening store in vacant Sears building

Milton has a new Green Mountain Habitat for Humanity ReStore in the works. The grand opening is slated for late next month, according to ReStore director Jonathan Goldhammer. The new nonprofit will bring three full-time positions with it: a manager, cashier and customer service representative, he added. “We felt Milton is a little bit underserved as a community,” he said. “We felt that it needed more retail establishments, something to tie in to the rest of the community.” The new store, GM Habitat’s second location in Chittenden County, is located just off Route 7 in the former Sears building....
