Market Street has now been open over a year and is more than just a road. Shared use paths provide a great walking and biking route, and the pond walking paths provide an ever changing view.

In the private sector development, a second building is underway on Garden Street, Dover Place, a 40-unit affordable housing project is going into construction, while Prospect Place, a mixed-use project, has completed site plan review.

We Work to Keep Your Water Clean
Formed in 2005, our stormwater utility maintains and improves the City's stormwater infrastructure. This includes management of water that runs off rooftops, paved and gravel roads, driveways, parking lots, and other hard services after a rain storm. This summer, there are several projects under construction to improve the current infrastructure, ultimately improving the water quality of the streams and Lake Champlain.
Your Team Keeping You Safe
The City's Public Safety team includes the police, fire & EMS, and public works departments. These men and women work around the clock to keep our community safe—whether that be clear plowed roads, emergency medical services, traffic control, or fire prevention.
Allard Square, located on Market Street is one of the new projects that was complete in 2018. This is an affordable housing community for seniors. There are 39 apartments located at Allard Square and 25 of the apartments are subsidized so renters only pay approximately 30% of their income.
To learn more about new projects please contact the Planning and Zoning office.
Our Parks and Natural Areas
Within the City, there are city parks, community parks, and natural areas. Along with these designated public spaces, recreation trails and paths run throughout the City.
