These new services are also available from the Map Services section of the Parcels Page at the VT Open Geodata Portal*:

Users should make plans to check the referenced parcel services in their applications and projects and, if referencing the old versions below, be sure to repoint them to the new services above between now and March 1st, 2021.

The older parcel services are slated for retirement and will be discontinued on March 1st, 2021 per VCGI’s Life Cycle Policy:

*Note: Parcel data downloads also available from the Parcels Page at the VT Open Geodata Portal remain served in VT State Plane Projection and are downloadable either as statewide layers for active and inactive polygons or individual town extracts for active polys. Furthermore, the new parcel services and downloads no longer contain a separately available parcel lines layer, as they are not uniformly maintained by source towns and map vendors.

As always, reach out to us at VCGI if you have any parcel-related questions and be sure to check the Parcel Program Overview Page periodically to learn about updates in how parcel data are maintained and made available throughout Vermont.
