Proctor's Future Report and Action Plan - May 2018

Through the Proctor's Future process, community members came together to identify and prioritize goals, foster local leadership, connect to resources and develop and realize achievable action plans. Through 2 public meetings, community members chose three community priorities for action, and signed up for task force groups to move them forward. The new task force groups will work to:

  • Market Proctor as a Place to Live, Work and do Business
  • Build Community: Events, Communication, and Engagement
  • Redevelop Historic Buildings.

Harrison Bushnell: Vermont's climate economy: The moment is now

My first food was a testament to Vermont's economy. As a baby, the story goes, my parents held me as we admired the steaming arch at our neighbors' house. They took a small spoon and let me taste my first few drops of Vermont ambrosia: maple syrup. The only problem was, the syrup was so good I wouldn't let go of the spoon.
