About Us

Irasburg CommonThe village of Irasburg, located in Vermont’s rugged Northeast Kingdom twenty miles south of the Quebec border, is home to just over 1,000 people. Despite its small size, it boasts a library, thriving small grocery store, post office, school, churches, and town hall, all situated within easy walking distance of the beautiful green Common.

The Irasburg Ridgeline Alliance seeks to protect our pristine mountain ridgelines from industrial wind development. Specifically, we want to express unified opposition to industrial wind towers proposed for Kidder Hill Ridge.

In 1779, Irasburg’s founder, Ira Allen, designed the Vermont state seal, with the motto “Freedom and Unity.” More than 200 years later, the Irasburg Ridgeline Alliance brings our citizens together to act in UNITY to take back the FREEDOM to make responsible decisions about our town, our ridgelines and our future.
