It looks like Barre Vermont is going to be the workplace for state workers displaced by Hurricane Irene. Government offices in Waterbury were terribly damaged from the storm that tore through Central Vermont this past Fall and the Governor has stated his dedication to securing jobs as well as office space and eyes are on Barre. The Mayor is backing up this plan.
According to a recent article in the Times Argus, “Lauzon builds on Shumlin promise of state jobs”, approximately 1500 state employees were misplaced by the damage to the offices in Waterbury, which means a potentially large number of people coming to Barre for work. More people means a boost to Barre’s economy.
Hand in hand with the possibility of government workers being relocated to Barre comes the development of City Place, an exciting mix of retail, office space and more that is intended to invigorate downtown Barre. This could also be a location for some of the state’s misplaced workers.
While Hurricane Irene devastated parts of Central Vermont, some good has come from a bad situation. Barre Vermont stands to have an opportunity to reinvent itself while revitalizing its core.
