To the voters and residents of Barre City: On behalf of Barre Area Development, Inc., we want to thank you for voting yes to Article 7 approving our Barre Rock Solid funding of $40,000.00. Your generous support and faith in our marketing and growth initiative is both gratifying and appreciated. Your endorsement of supporting change for Barre has not gone unnoticed by those outside of our community. The State of Vermont has reached out to us to participate in several grants that will benefit economic development and social conditions in Barre. Your support has given us the recognition, credibility and momentum we need to continue to improve Barre.
Due to the Covid-19 virus, the Vermont Council on Rural Development's "All in for Barre" forums scheduled for April 7th are cancelled and a new date will be established when prudent. The forums in Barre City are intended to explore wide range of topics with the objective of establishing attainable goals that everyone can endorse. We encourage anyone and everyone in Barre to attend and share your thoughts, dreams and suggestions. This is your City and your future! Every voice is important. More information about "All in for Barre" will be forthcoming, and we will post and publicize as soon as we know.
Notwithstanding a national health crisis that impacts our country, exciting progress for Barre will continue, and all eyes will be on Barre! We feel that it is high time to showcase Barre’s assets to the world. Our future is bright and we believe that when the power of the people in Barre is un-leashed by working together, and believing that we can make positive changes, we will successfully meet the challenge of growing Barre and improving the economic prosperity and quality of life for everyone who works and lives in Barre.
Once again, thank you for your support. Thank you for believing in BADC.
