Stowe Vibrancy has led or participated in numerous projects and events in Stowe Village over the past nine years. These include the development of a small “Village Green,” installation of decorative plantings and gardens, implementing seasonal street banners and hanging plantings, developing and financing seasonal displays in the village, and lighting Main Street during the winter holiday season.
The Design & Economic Development Committee led the Stowe Village Vision Task Force in producing “Stowe 2020 – A Vision for Stowe Village” – a planning document that outlines our challenges and opportunities over the next five years,
Stowe Vibrancy recently presented its “half-time report” on the Stowe 2020 Village Vision to the Town of Stowe, which was favorably received by the Select-board and attending residents. Stowe Reporter reported on this presentation.
More significantly, Stowe Vibrancy is leading the charge to help enact needed policy recommendations and specific tasks laid out in the report.
