Welcome...

to the Town of Barre. Nestled deep within the Green Mountains of Central Vermont our small, but growing, community is home to approximately 7,600 residents. Officially chartered in 1781, the Town of Barre incorporates 5 separate villages and is known for its large granite quarries, panoramic mountain views, beautiful natural scenery, outstanding school, great residential neighborhoods, and many modern recreation facilities. As an integral part of the Barre-Montpelier urban area, our families enjoy all the conveniences of an urban area while residing in some of the state's most pristine, rural environments. Please feel free to visit our community anytime.


Spring has finally arrived!

Warnings are available for the Open Town Meeting, Wednesday, May 7, 2014 and Voting by Australian ballot on May 13, 2014. Click on the dates to view the warnings. To view the May 13, 2014 sample ballot click here.

1. Saturday, April 26 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. the C.V. Solid Waste Management District will hold a household hazardous waste (HHW) collection for District residents. Barre Town is a member of the District. The collection will be at the Barre Town public works yard, 129 Websterville Road. The fee is $15 per car load. For more information check the District's website (www.cvswmd.org). At the same time the Selectboard will hold an Open House at the truck garage on that lot. There is some thought the town should build a new vehicle maintenance building on the lot (allowing sale of the present shopt at 79 Pitman Road). Part of the long term plan is to raze and replace the existing truck garage too. Stop by, see for yourself and learn more.

2. The Town of Barre ordinances require homes to have a house number. Our Police, Fire, and Ambulance Departments ask that homeowners be sure their house number is posted where it can be seen easily and clearly from the street or road. For residents in rural areas this probably means posting the number at the end fo the driveway. Numbers should be displayed to be seen day or night, winter, spring, summer, or fall. To help residents mark their property the Town is offering house numbers for $10. These highly reflective green background and white numbers are placed on an aluminum sign blank. Click here to obtain an order form.

3. The Recreation Board is offering tennis lessons for students (entering grades 4 -12) and for adults this summer. Lessons will be taught by Spaulding High School girls tennis coach Kelly Cleveland. Click here for the "Registration and Waiver Consent" forms. It states the dates, times, and cost of lessons. Please fill out the forms and take them to the Barre Town Recreation Area tennis courts Thursday, May 22 or 29, 2014 between 5:30 p.m. - 7:00 p.m.....rain or shine!
