AMS Planning and Research, the consulting firm hired by Killington to evaluate the feasibility of creating an outdoor entertainment venue, presented the results of the first phase of their review. In short, they recommended going forward with Phase II of the study which includes the development of an operating model and a determination of the economic potential. The study will focus on events and festivals and not the construction of permanent buildings for an events center. This feasibility study is costing $34,000 and is being funded by a state grant. To date, $25,000 has been spent to purchase the option for the land, $36,000 is being spent to conduct investigative work on the land and $34,000 is being spent to determine if the idea is feasible.
$95,000 to determine the viability of doing "tented" out door events. Meanwhile the Killington Planning Commission after countless meetings has yet to vote on "The Village", potentially a half billion dollar investment in Killington's future.
