Monkton residents to hold meeting about store

MONKTON — A group of Monkton residents is asking their neighbors to come talk about the Monkton General Store and discuss ways it could be revitalized.

The meeting will be held at the Monkton Town Hall & Library and online from 5-7 p.m. this Friday, March 11. Log onto the meeting via Zoom at tinyurl.com/LetsTalkMonkton.

A discussion notice on the town website asks, “Does our town need, want a general store?”

The discussion will be using the Community Supported Enterprise (CSE) model as a guide. Preservation Trust of Vermont says CSEs come in a variety of forms, including restaurants, general stores, cafes and pubs, and reflect the needs and desires of an individual community.

To learn more about CSEs and how they’ve succeeded in other Vermont towns, head online to ptvermont.org/our-work/cse.

This is an exploratory discussion to gauge the community’s relative support for such an endeavor, nothing more.

All Monkton residents are welcome.
