Randolph Zoning Department

 

The Zoning Department is comprised of four components: Zoning Administrator, Planning Commission, Development Review Board and Conservation Commission.  Additionally, there are two advisory boards that assist the Development Review Board:  the Design Review Advisory Commission for development in the Interchange Districts and the Randolph Center Design Review Panel for development in the Randolph Center Historic District.  All of these components are governed by Title 24 Chapter 117 of the Vermont Statutes Annotated.  The regional planning commission for Randolph is Two Rivers-Ottauquechee Regional Commission in Woodstock.

The Town of Randolph has two ordinances that govern development within the Town: the newly-adopted Land Use Regulations and the Randolph Sign Ordinance which are administered through the Zoning Department.  Additionally, there is a Randolph Fire District #1 Sign Ordinance that is administered by that District (see below).

The Village of Randolph has had zoning regulations since 1933. In 1965, zoning regulations were adopted for the entire Town of Randolph.  Additionally, the Town has regulated subdivisions since 1971.  A brief history of zoning and subdivision regulations is provided below.
