Big news for Killington this coming week!
First, according to the Rutland Herald this week, the Select Board has approved spending $25,000 of revenue from the 1% Options tax to move forward on the purchase of real estate. Although the location of the property being purchased has not been formally announced, it is my understanding that it is a large parcel of land located on Killington Road. The property is to be used to host new town events. The purchase is expected to be announced formally at the Killington Select Board meeting to be held Monday evening, August 24th. Stay tuned for further details.
Second, the Killington Planning Commission will be discussing, and hopefully moving forward on Wednesday evening, August 26th, with some type of approval of the PUD application, submitted by SP Land Company several weeks ago. This meeting is the continuation of the public hearing process which has been discussed and recessed from meeting to meeting over the past couple of months. Although we don't anticipate approval of the complete PUD, we are optimistic that the Commission will approve the Conceptual Master Plan and the PUD, with conditions. This should allow SP Land to move forward with more detailed design and engineering. Many more steps are required before any construction may begin, including Vermont's Act 250 procedures and detailed building and site plan reviews. This could, however, signal an important first step towards the development of the much anticipated Killington Village. Again, stay tuned for further details.
