Downtown and Village Revitalization Website is Launched!
A new website has been launched to assist southern Vermont communities with downtown and village center revitalization. This website provides a toolkit of information and resources to help communities build vibrancy and economic resiliency. Among the resources are links to useful guides and information, implementation strategies, funding sources, case studies, and government and non-profit entities that offer additional information
In December 2012, the Windham and Bennington County Regional Commissions were awarded a grant by the U.S. Economic Development Administration’s (EDA) Disaster Recovery Program to support economic resilience in southern Vermont. In addition to the development of this website, the EDA grant allowed the Windham Regional Commission, the Bennington County Regional Commission, and the Brattleboro Development Credit Corporation to work with communities throughout southern Vermont to develop strategies for downtown and village revitalization. Reports were developed for nearly 20 communities which highlight strategies to support community-generated goals. These reports can be found on the website.
