Two-and-a-half-hour workshop marks the second phase of Revamp The Ville

LYNDON — More than 50 people gathered in the basement of the First Congregational Church on Wednesday evening. Their mission? To revive Lyndonville. The two-and-a-half-hour workshop marked the second phase of Revamp The Ville, a grant-funded effort to breathe new life into the village district. Those in attendance took a wish list of downtown improvements and whittled it down to a dozen or so priorities such as the need for a bar, more diverse dining, traffic calming, and sidewalk expansion. Ultimately, Revamp The Ville will publish a master plan for downtown redevelopment, with specific projects for implementation. It is viewed as an important step forward in the town’s continued economic progress. The event marked the second phase of Revamp The Ville.
