Re: “Five-Story Hotel Proposed for Downtown Winooski

Sigh. Another 'historic' structure that has been chopped into apartments, sheathed in vinyl and let fall into disrepair for decades. As a Winooski resident, I welcome the jobs, tax growth and downtown revitalization that a new hotel would bring.

Re: “Keurig Green Mountain Lays Off 35 Vermont Employees

And in Randolph, homegrown LEDdynamics is breaking ground on a $5M expansion and adding 40 jobs. But that kind of good news doesn't conform to the obligatory "Vermont is a terrible place to do business" trope that grabs headlines. Unless, of course, you are VTDigger:…

This rotten pessimism about Vermont's economy is pervasive and self-defeating. Even our dear governor can't help but qualify good news with dreary facts about an aging workforce and unfilled jobs. We don't seem to grasp difference between knowing the bad news and shouting it from the rooftops. What we tell the rest of the country is what they will hear and believe.

Re: “Tall Mall Looms Over Central District Council Race

Just remember, Jane Knodell is a "lifelong Progressive" who voted FOR the basing of the F-35 at BIA without proper legal or environmental review and participated in the stonewalling of dissent. I guess her Progressive values don't apply to working-class families in Winooski and South Burlington.

Re: “Starting Over: First Steps for Refugees in Vermont

Great comic! I would love to 7D run a regular cartoon strip from a New American's point of view.

Re: “New Performance Venue Planned in Thriving Downtown Winooski

I live a block from the proposed venue. You can park in my driveway for $20.

Re: “Developer Gets Permit for 232 Burlington Apartments, Offers Parkland

This housing is being built on a street with no bus service, no bike lanes,and a sidewalk that dead-ends in the middle of nowhere. What's more, Burlington has quietly shelved plans to re-do the complete disarray at the Riverside/Colchester Ave intersection by the Winooski Bridge. I don't know how Burlington can realistically bill itself as a walkable/bikeable urban community when it allows for this kind of suburban sprawl with zero new transportation infrastructure.
'Donating' six acres of undevelopable land to WVPD doesn't make SD Ireland good corporate citizens, it makes them savvy developers by reducing their property tax burden and passing the cost of maintaining these lands due to increased development along to the taxpayer.
I am generally pro-infill and think building up Burlington's tax base is necessary, but this project is just ridiculously short on positives. Enjoy your commute everyone!
