Proctor is uniquely situated along a north-south valley of the Otter Creek, making it one of the most picturesque towns in Rutland County. Our vast marble and sand deposits, the proximity to the “Great Falls” of Otter Creek and the rail lines are among the primary reasons Redfield Proctor, Sr. formed the Vermont Marble Company here in 1880. Six years later, the settlement of Sutherland Falls was recognized as the Town of Proctor by the Vermont State Legislature.
Our legacy as the former center of the global marble industry forms the basis for the cultural experience of Proctor today. We are home to the Fletcher Proctor Memorial Bridge, the Vermont Marble Museum, and the Wilson Castle. Visitors continue to admire our unique marble sidewalks and buildings.
Proctor’s well-regarded local school system, active community groups, and abundant historical, cultural, and recreational opportunities make it a compelling place for our 1,900 residents and for visitors to explore.

Bike/Ped Path Scoping Study
The Bike/Ped Path Study Committee held a Public Informational Meeting on February 8, 2017 to present the Scoping Study Report. Minutes of the meeting are posted on the Standing Committee website tab.
The Town is preparing for a complete town-wide reappraisal for the 2017 Grand List. The Town has hired APPRAISAL RESOURCE GROUP, INC. to assist the Town Assessor in completing this Reappraisal Project. The first phase of the Project includes the inspection of all residential and commercial real estate. The objective of this part of the process is to verify and update the Town’s assessment records to current standards for entry into a state-of-the-art appraisal software system.
Project staff members are canvassing Town properties. Staff members are required by State of Vermont guidelines to inspect the exterior and interior of all structures. The inspection process is done on a neighborhood by neighborhood basis. Property owners will be notified by mail when the staff members will be working in their area of Town. The staff will be collecting data on rooms, bathrooms, basements, attics, porches, garages, etc. They are not interested in the decor or housekeeping. The staff members or data collectors will be measuring exterior dimensions of all buildings and collecting construction data.
Also, the data collectors will be taking color digital photos of the exteriors of all dwellings. The digital images will be installed on the Town’s computer system as part of the real estate property records.
If no one is available when they visit a home, the data collectors will verify all the exterior information and will return at another time to view the interior of the house.
The last town-wide reappraisal was done in 2007. If anyone has any questions they can call the Assessor's Office in the Town Office at 802 459-3333 Ext. 12. The Project is being run out of that office. The Assessor's Office will be updating the public as the Project progresses. The reappraisal firm will be scheduling informational public meetings as the Project moves ahead. The Project is scheduled for completion for the 2017 Grand List.
