Albany, Vermont Community Store Recognized During Governor's Visit
On October 9th Vermont Governor Phil Scott visited the site of the former Albany General Store in Albany, VT as part of his "Capital for a Day" tour of Orleans County. The project to rebuild the store as a community hub has gained momentum and is the recipient of multiple funding grants, including $55,000 in Downtown and Village Center tax credits.
David Koschak, CDG Designer and resident of nearby Craftsbury, has volunteered his time to the Albany Community Trust to contribute to the planning and conceptual design processes that have envisioned new potential for the building that has been vacant since a 2014 fire.
