About West Windsor

West Windsor is a rural Vermont community located amidst rolling hills and meadows just west of the Connecticut River. Mount Ascutney rises more than two thousand feet over the village of Brownsville and provides abundant outdoor recreation opportunities. Boasting miles of spectacular hiking and mountain-biking trails, backcountry skiing, a lift-served community ski area, and tubing hill, the mountain is a destination for outdoor adventure in any season.

Brownsville: Between the Bridges & Beyond

Brownsville: Between the Bridges and Beyond

The Town of West Windsor is participating in a planning level project for the village center!

Brownsville: Between the Bridges and Beyond will provide implementation steps for building an enhanced village center and improving the connection between the Village and Mount Ascutney.

The goal of this project is to foster a more inviting and user-friendly village center in Brownsville, with a strong and resilient local economy that serves residents and visitors! There will be a series of meetings designed to solicit as much community feedback as possible.

We will be hosting a conversation for the West Windsor community on Saturday, June 15th at 10:00am at Story Memorial Hall and a conversation for local businesses and community organizations on Tuesday, June 18th at 5:30pm at Story Memorial Hall. Both events will also have remote options for those who would prefer to attend virtually.

For full details of the Brownsville: Between the Bridges and Beyond community conversation on Saturday, June 15th, please click here or visit the community events calendar!

For more information on the project, please visit the Brownsville: Between the Bridges and Beyond website. There is also a public survey available, which we encourage you to complete!
