Town eyeing land near prison for industrial park

Municipal officials in Springfield are in discussion with the state of Vermont to take ownership of 32 acres of land next to Southern State Correctional Facility for a new industrial park.    


  1. The North Springfield park is full? Didn't know that we were so industry-rich.

  2. More gyrations to create the appearance of progress. We've heard and seen it all before. The only thing this article was missing was any mention of SRDC taking a bow for something it had nothing to do with.

  3. Far as I know, industries/businesses are seldom eager to set up in a desert. The installation of water and sewage lines is expensive and at least somewhat speculative. Are the local 'authorities' aware of companies clamoring for developed space in our forward looking community?

  4. At least it is located near the interstate. That MIGHT attract a business or two. Maybe turn the J&L into a park. Speaking of which, when is that coming down?


Please keep your comments polite and on-topic. No profanity
