Proctor residents to discuss town’s future; Meeting to be held, May 16

PROCTOR—Proctor residents are invited to a meeting to line up action plans to move community-identified priority projects forward May 16.

Community volunteers will meet in the Vermont Marble Museum at 52 Main St. in Proctor May 16 to frame out action plans and work with a resource team of federal, state, business, and non-profit leaders to identify next steps and resources that can help them succeed.

Judy Frazier, a community leader and Select Board member in Proctor says, “Our initial meeting on April 18 brought a committed group that was filled with ideas and energy to move this tiny town forward. Suggestions were diverse and all represented the careful thought and feeling that people have put into this venture of ours. The next meeting on May 16 is even more valuable as it will carry us to the next planning stage where dreams can become reality and hopefully success. I have worked on so many committees and when sweat and soul are needed, Proctor residents come through with flying colors.”

Proctor residents came together to set core priorities for future action in town in April. They reviewed Proctor assets and challenges and brainstormed ideas for the future. They then voted on three top priority ideas to boost the community and the town’s economy into the future. At the end of the session, participants signed up as volunteers to advance these new initiatives.

The core priorities include work to redevelop historic buildings in Proctor, andto market Proctor as a place to live work and do business and to build community through events, communication, and community engagement.

The meeting will be held on Wednesday May 16 from 6:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Vermont Marble Museum at 52 Main St. in Proctor.
