Brattleboro greenlights home buyout

Posted: Updated:

An update regarding a FEMA home buyout in Brattleboro.

Valerie Walden's home on Western Avenue was severely damaged during Tropical Storm Irene. Earlier this year, she applied for a hazard mitigation home buyout. FEMA and the state approved the application. However, there were some concerns the town may deny it because the buyout will turn the property into green space, taking it off the tax rolls.

But Tuesday night, the Brattleboro select board unanimously approved the buyout, worth just less than $320,000.
