Expanding Public Green Space in Downtown Vergennes!
Updated: Oct 20, 2022
Exciting news! The two month crowdfunding campaign for the Park Street Community Project (PSCP) raised $22,265. A total of 109 patrons, including individuals, businesses, and non-profits, donated to the project. PSCP will now receive the $40,000 matching
grant from the Better Places program, giving PSCP over $60,000 towards implementing our green space plans. Over the next several months, the PSCP committee will be meeting to shore up our plans on design and implementation. We hope to break ground in the spring of 2023. Check back here for updates as plans develop!
Thank you to everyone at St. Paul’s who contributed to and supported the project. A special thanks goes to St. Paul’s for its generous donation of $5,000 from the St. Paul’s memorial funds. As a community crowdfunding effort, St. Paul’s donation was a key factor in helping us get to our goal of raising $20,000. Now with the additional contributions from the community, PSCP can develop the green space for public use as St. Paul’s has supported for many years. The overall plan for the green space development has been part of a multi-year effort, starting with the new sidewalk, Panton stone wall, and stained glass windows repairs, with contributions from many grants, as we worked together with the community and the City of Vergennes.
More detail on the project and the crowdfunding efforts will continue to be posted at the Park Street Community Project website (link below) made available through the state’s Better Places program and their partner Patronicity.
