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.

Notice of Public Meeting
The Proctor Selectboard is considering applying for State of Vermont, VTrans Bicycle and Pedestrian Program funds for the design and construction of Phase 1 of the Bike/Ped Path as defined in the scoping/feasibility study completed in February 2017. Phase 1 will improve pedestrian and bicyclists mobility along South Street between Grove Street and Main Street. The project will replace 1025’ of 4’–wide asphalt with 5’-wide concrete sidewalk from Grove Street to north of St. Dominic’s Church, 670’ of 4’ marble sidewalks with 5’-wide, marble inlay concrete, from St. Dominic’s Church to Main Street and will provide granite curbing and striped widen shoulders.
The proposal is to apply for a $517,600 VTrans Bicycle and Pedestrian Program Grant to be matched with $129,400 in local funds to be used to accomplish the project design and construction. The Scoping Study Report is available below or at the Town Office, 45 Main Street, Proctor, VT 05765.
A public meeting will be held at the Proctor Town Office Meeting Room, 45 Main Street, Proctor, VT on June 26, 2017 at 5:30 P.M. to discuss the proposed project and to obtain the views of citizens on the need and desirability of such a path.
