Lyndon is six miles square (36 square miles) in area and has a population of 5,981 residents (2010 census). It is recognized as the "Covered Bridge Capital of Vermont's Northeast Kingdom". Lyndon is surrounded by some of Vermont's most gorgeous natural beauty. This New England community is home to Lyndon Institute and Lyndon State College, and is nearby to the Burke Mountain Ski Area.
The Village of Lyndonville, located within the Town of Lyndon, was incorporated by an act of the legislature dated December 24, 1880. Within the Village, Bandstand Park (formerly known as "Lyndonville Park"), stands a fountain, which was purchased in New York in 1885. The Park hosts many events from weekly band concerts in the summer, a Farmer's Market, and craft fairs to community events, weddings, and your everyday year round enjoyment.

"ALL HAZARD MITIGATION PLAN & PUBLIC PREPAREDNESS SURVEY"
The Hazard Mitigation Committee is working on developing a Hazard Mitigation Plan. The purpose of this plan is to identify and assess each jurisdiction's natural hazard risks (such as flooding, winter storms, hurricanes and earthquakes) and determine how to best minimize or manage those risks.
The Town of Lyndon and Village of Lyndonville are currently engaged in a planning process to become less vulnerable to disasters caused by natural hazards. Complete the Lyndon and Lyndonville Public Preparedness Survey. This survey provides an opportunity for you to share your opinions and participate in the mitigation planning process. The information you provide will help us better understand your hazard concerns and can lead to mitigation activites that should help lessen the impacts of future disasters.
