Westminster road name map
Portion of Westminster's road name map

Overview
The Windham Regional Commission is working on producing a complete and consistent set of road name maps for nearly all of the towns in the Windham Region. With the advent of Enhanced 911 service in Vermont in 1998, some long-standing road names have changed and many new names have been applied to roads that were previously unnamed.

We have nearly completed maps in an 11x17 black & white format. Most of these maps have a scale of 1:40,000 or 1:48,000. Single photocopies of the black & white maps are free at the WRC office, while an 11x17 original (to make clean copies from) or the larger format color maps, will be available for a small charge. These maps can also be downloaded blow. Plans call for a complete 24" x 36" color map series, mostly at 1:18000 scale.

Content
Most road name maps include the most recent road names for both public and private roads. The roads themselves are broken down as to their jurisdiction, i.e. federal or state, town, or private, and by their surfacing, i.e. paved or unpaved. Road names, type, and jurisdiction data have been developed by working very closely with officials from the towns and represent the most accurate and up-to-date information available.

Maps On-line
Road name maps in 11x17 inch black & white format are available on-line for viewing and download. These maps are in PDF, or portable document file format. You'll need Adobe Acrobat Reader (available free for download at Adobe's web site, www.adobe.com) to view and/or print the maps. To access the maps, simply go to the "Availability" section and click on the PDF link that follows the appropriate town name.

Obtaining maps
Single copies of the 11x17 inch black & white maps are free, and are available at the WRC office. These maps may also be available at various town offices, where a small fee may be charged. If you intend to make photocopies from the black & white map, you may want to consider getting an first-generation original printed map so your photocopies will come out clearer. These original maps are available for a small fee.

Large color maps are plotted on an as-requested basis; we do not keep a supply on hand. Maps can be ordered by notifying Jeff Nugent. Maps are $10 for the first copy, and $2.50 for each additional copy. They must be picked up at the WRC office (maps can be mailed, but they will be mailed folded!).

Some towns may have copies available through their town offices, though the cost of these maps may vary. Several towns have made copies available gratis to certain cooperating groups such as emergency response organizations.

Cost
Single copies of the 11x17 inch black & white maps are free, and are available at the WRC office. Single copies of the color 24x36 inch maps are $10.00, with additional copies costing $2.50 each.
