2017 NOMINATING PETITION

Posted by & filed under Uncategorized.

The Wilmington Select Board last month voted to reinstate the Façade Improvement Grants Program with some changes to the criteria. For the last two years, the program was successful in helping offset the costs of improving facades of commercial buildings throughout Wilmington. The grants are financed through monies received from the 1% Local Option Tax.

The 2017 program is funded at $75,000 and will be awarded through a one-time competitive grant process. Commercial property owners (Business, Rental Properties, and Non-profits) located on Route 100 North, Route 9 East & West, South Main Street, Coldbrook Road, and East Dover Road may apply for up to a $5,000 grant. A 25% cash match from the property owner is required. Projects may include: Full façade change, siding, windows, painting, signage and landscaping. An applicant may also apply for up to $1,000 for a design rendering (by a design consultant) for a full façade change.

Roofs are no longer a covered expense in the program. The use of local businesses for services and supplies are encouraged. Buildings that have received prior Façade Funds are not eligible, unless the maximum grant of $5,000 was not received.

For more detailed information please refer to the 2017 Façade Program Guidelines on the Town of Wilmington website http://wilmingtonvermont.us. Applications are also available now. The application deadline is February 1, 2017 at 4pm. For questions or assistance please contact the Economic Development Specialist, Gretchen Havreluk. She can be reached at the Wilmington Town Offices at 464-8591 or email ghavreluk@wilmingtonvt.us.

The Wilmington Water District has sent out their bills and there is a bit of confusion.

The new bills say “Wilmington Water District Sewer Bill” . This is your water bill, it is not a scam, and it is not a Wilmington Sewer Bill.

The Town of Wilmington’s phone number is also listed in error.

 

If you have questions about your water bill, please call Rachel at 802-373-7226 or Chris at 802-258-7445. You can also email them at wilvtwaterdistrict@gmail.com.
