Vacancies On Town Boards and Commissions

As part of the Select Board's Policy for Appointments to Commissions, Boards, and Committees (CBC), individuals interested in an appointment must express their interest in writing to the Select Board. Selection of an applicant is at the discretion of the Select Board, and an effort shall be made to create or maintain a balance of views that is representative of the community. The Select Board will also consider an applicant's qualifications, level of interest, and potential conflicts of interest as they pertain to the duties of the appointment under consideration.

The Select Board has established a policy to standardize procedures for the selection, appointment, membership, and dismissal process for Select Board appointed town Commissions, Board, and Committees (CBC).

Affordable Housing Committee
An advisory group responsible for gathering, generating and prioritizing ideas and plans which will help to increase the availability of affordable housing in the Town, as well as to assess the quality and quantity of current affordable housing, and to bring these ideas and information forward in a advisory manner to the Select Board, Planning Commission, Development Review Board and Town staff. This is a nine member committee.

Agency Request Review Committee
An advisory group responsible for evaluating and prioritizing requests for funding appropriations from social service agencies that serve the residents of our community, and for making a funding recommendation to the Selectboard to be included in the annual budget. The task of the Agency Request Review Committee would be to evaluate the information submitted by social service agencies, considering factors such as the number of Hinesburg residents served, the type of service and the percentage of agency income that is used for program costs, to prioritize and quantify appropriations in order to maximize the value residents receive from the tax dollars appropriated. Due to the annual fluctuation in workload, the Committee does not have a regular schedule for meetings. However, the majority of the Committee’s work is completed between September and December annually.

Economic Development Committee
The mission of the Economic Development Committee is to develop a 5-year Strategic Economic Development Plan for adoption by the Select Board; and help recruit, vet, promote, and aid Hinesburg business owners and developers to work amicably and efficiently with the Town and its local governing body.

Town Forest Committee
The Mission of The Hinesburg Town Forest Committee is established for the purpose of providing stewardship for both the 837-acre Hinesburg Town Forest (HTF) and the 301-acre LaPlatte Headwaters Town Forest (LHTF). The Committee shall serve in an advisory capacity to the Selectboard, Commissions, or Town staff as appropriate in matters relating to the HTF and LHTF, and in consultation with the Chittenden County Forester shall make recommendations to the Select Board for management of the Town Forests.

Village Steering Committee
An advisory group responsible for gathering, generating and prioritizing ideas and plans which will help to enhance the quality of life in the village, and to bring these ideas forward to the elected officials, appointed boards and commissions and Town staff. The Village Steering Committee serves as a voice for the residents and businesses located in the village area. Residing in the village is not a requirement for serving on this committee. The Committee meets the second Monday of each month.
