Town Green & Community Center Survey 2023
Posted: September 10, 2023
Survey Results & Economic Development Committee Recommendations
The Economic Development Committee (EDC) engaged the community in a survey following up on the ARPA Committee's recommendation that money should be used
to turn Cole Hall and its immediate surroundings into a Community Center/Town Green - one that can host community events both large and small, indoors and
outdoors. The Community Center and Town Green would be a municipal building funded by ARPA funds, private donations and state/federal grants and will be
developed over the next fi ve years. The Town, EDC, Shaftsbury Citizens and Bennington County Regional Commission will work in concert to bring this idea to
fruition. To read more about the ARPA Committee's recommendations, please read the Town's 2022 Annual Report.
The survey garnered 128 responses.
Thank you to everyone who participated!
