Historic groups urge rehabilitating Lake Champlain Bridge

March 15, 2007

By JOHN FLOWERS

ADDISON — Three regional historic preservation groups are urging the New York Department of Transportation (NYDOT) to rehabilitate, rather than replace, the deteriorating Lake Champlain Bridge.

Representatives of the Preservation Trust of Vermont, the Preservation League of New York State (PLNYS) and Adirondack Architectural Heritage made their feelings known on Wednesday at a press conference at the Crown Point State Historic Site. At that meeting, PLNYS officials announced they were adding the Champlain Bridge  — also known as the Crown Point Bridge — to the organization’s “Seven to Save” list. The list annually features seven historic sites in New York that the organization has deemed “in danger of disappearing because of lack of funding and financial incentives, insensitive public policies, general neglect, disinvestment and … outright demolition.”

Local buyer steps forward for Dana-King House

March 12, 2007

By CYRUS LEVESQUE

NEW HAVEN — A local family has stepped forward to express an interest in buying the Dana-King House, a historic home owned by the town and located next to New Haven’s town offices. Raymond and Deborah Fortier of New Haven said that, if possible, they would like to buy the house and move it to their property at 216 North St., keeping it in the village but not on town property.

“I’ve always loved it. Every time I’ve gone to an event there, I thought it was so pretty,” said Deborah Fortier. “I didn’t want to see the house torn down or taken away.”

March 8, 2007

By JOHN FLOWERS

MIDDLEBURY — Middlebury voters on Monday slogged through a marathon town meeting during which they added $50,000 to their proposed municipal budget, appropriated $30,000 in seed money for a new teen center, and took local leaders to task for rejecting a petitioned Iraq War resolution that still made it to the floor and passed overwhelmingly.

Otter Valley bond vote fails

March 8, 2007

By MEGAN JAMES

BRANDON — There was nothing extravagant about the Otter Valley School District’s $10,991,527 proposed budget, OV principal Dana Cole-Levesque said. After all, it was 4.8 percent higher than last year’s budget of $10,479,219. But together with the school’s two bond proposals, a combined $10.5 million to pay for the renovation of the 45-year old school building and the construction of a new middle school gymnasium, it was simply too much to ask of district voters.

Area roadwork soon to change from plows to new pavement

March 5, 2007

By JOHN FLOWERS

MIDDLEBURY — Middlebury’s roads are still being serviced by snowplows and sanders, but it won’t be too long before they are invaded by hungry excavators and gargantuan asphalt rollers.

Town officials, local businesses and area motorists are already anticipating — some dreading — this spring and summer, when work crews will begin a busy construction season that will include more than $1.7 million in paving work for state roads running through downtown Middlebury.

“It’s going to be a patience-testing summer, but then we should be in good shape for awhile,” said Middlebury Director of Operations Dan Werner. “We should have a nice looking downtown, when it is done.”
