Carl Spangler has been selected to head the Killington's new Economic and Tourism Department. Spangler has held positions in state and local government and has been involved in Vermont's recreation industry for over 30 years. Spangler has also served as a senior planner and development officer for several ski resorts including Killington and Sugarbush.
This Department is being funded from a 1 percent local option tax which is estimated to generate over $600,000 annually. The goal of the Department is to create and sustain year-round programs to boost Killington's local economy. Mr. Spangler is a firm believer in the development of a Village and should be a strong liaison between the town of Killington and S.P. Land, the developers.
