Plan forged for new Middlebury town offices, gym with college help

MIDDLEBURY — Middlebury College has pledged $5.5 million toward a $7.5 million plan that would result in a new downtown municipal building and a new gym that would be located near the Memorial Sports Center off Mary Hogan Drive. . . . . . . 

 

. . . . . The town hired Vermont Integrated Architecture (VIA) in 2011 to study the two buildings and propose some new structures to replace them at their current location. VIA delivered the selectboard some plans showing how it might keep the gym and replace the municipal complex with a new, energy-efficient building of 16,200-19,000 square feet that would house municipal offices, public meeting spaces, a visitors’ center and the nonprofit occupants of the current building, including the local teen center and senior center. The space would have also accommodated some additional organizations as paying tenants.

Proposed price tag for the plan: $6 million to $10 million. . . . . . .
