Petition to Vote on Your Town Plan


The Pownal proposed town plan will be going to the Select Board, who will vote whether to approve it or not. If they approve this plan, it will be in effect for 8 years and will inform the creation of new bylaws, ordinances and regulations.

These new bylaws and ordinances will have the potential to affect how and where you live, your personal property rights and many other aspects of the town you call home.

This petition seeks to bring the town plan to the VOTERS of Pownal for approval, not the Select Board. If the plan goes to a town vote, your voice now has a vote.

Please sign the petition if you would like to have your voice heard on this plan through a legal town referendum and vote. With enough signatures, the Select Board will have to host a special meeting to ask you, the voters, if you want the right to vote on the contents of your own town plan.

You can download a copy of the full proposed plan from the Town of Pownal website (, or download the plan here: https:// Also hard copies are available at the Town Offices to pick up.

Please attend the public meeting on the proposed town plan September 19 and 20 at the Pownal Elementary School Gym at 7pm. Read it. Decide for yourself. Spread the word. Make your voice heard!P
