Street Closure Information


The City of Montpelier is considering a new Street Closure Policy.  The purpose of that policy states “Permission to use public space is a privilege which is granted at the sole discretion of the City Council.   Providing such opportunities in a safe and manageable manner is a goal of the City Council and of City staff.”   

As part of that policy, City staff will provide notice to downtown businesses and residents.  Such notices will be posted on this page.
