MIDDLEBURY — The company that is planning to build more than 88 units of “mixed-income” housing off Seminary Street Extension in Middlebury will host its second public information meeting this Wednesday, Sept. 7. In a meeting at the Middlebury town offices from 5:30-6:30 p.m., Summit Properties officials will talk about their plans for the 35 acres purchased earlier this year by Middlebury College to improve the town’s housing stock.

At the first informational meeting on June 27, officials at the South Burlington-based company mapped out a summer 2023 groundbreaking but offered few specifics on the makeup of the housing project, other than the hope to create an equal mix of affordable/workforce and market-rate units.

Summit officials said they have taken ongoing community feedback and will use the second meeting to introduce preliminary conceptual plans and seek further feedback. The presentation will be followed by a Q&A.

Summit Properties is a Vermont housing provider of mixed-income communities that got its start in Middlebury in the 1980s. Since then Summit has developed more than 1,000 apartments (and currently manages more than 1,400 apartments) of mixed-income housing.
