How Should the Vacant Lot Next to CTES Be Used?

A committee has been formed to develop plans for the lot adjacent to Cavendish Town Elementary School (CTES) recently purchased by the town with funds donated by local resident Curtis Bidgood.  The lot will be developed for use by both the school and community.  CTES School Director Sharon Huntley chairs the committee, which includes CTES Directors Fred Marin and Brenda Gregory; principal George Thomson; sixth grade teacher Robin Bebo-Long along with  local landscape architect Tim Calabrese and Select Board member Wendy Regier.  

 After an initial walkthrough in early October, the committee has met to discuss some preliminary ideas. As a follow-up to that first meeting, the committee is now seeking input from the community before moving forward. 

 Cavendish and Proctorsville citizens are encouraged to submit their thoughts by Nov. 30, 2014 in one of the following ways:

• Comment below or to the Cavendish VT Facebook page

• E mail comment  to 

• Send a letter to writing to Rich Svec at the town office.

One caveat for the lot use – all plans need to include at least some additional parking for CTES.
