New Haven's Green Line talks progressing

By Gaen Murphree



NEW HAVEN — Negotiations continue between New Haven and developers of a renewable energy power line and high-voltage converter station in town, but town officials would not commit to when residents would get a vote on the matter.

And a VGL official has cautioned that the project must keep to its own schedule.

Carnevale Vergennes 1.jpeg

The third annual Carnevale Vergennes, held in the Vergennes Opera House on Saturday, March 5, was an amazing success. When we started this event in 2014 we hoped to raise important operational funds for two nonprofits, the Vergennes Opera House and the Vergennes Partnership. That first event raised $6,000, which was shared between the two groups.

In 2015, last year, we doubled that amount, raising $12,000, allowing for the same two organizations to receive $6,000 each.
