Montpelier, Vt.— Governor Phil Scott today issued the following statement regarding a recent infrastructure investment award in the Brattleboro, VT Opportunity Zone from the U.S. Department of Commerce’s Economic Development Administration (EDA):
“Congratulations to the Town of Brattleboro on its recent award from the EDA to make infrastructure improvements at the Exit One Industrial Park and Delta Business Campus. I’m pleased to see the Town and the Brattleboro Development Credit Corporation working together to make economic expansion a reality in southern Vermont.
“These partners have set the table for economic growth by positioning prime developable land to anchor industrial sites that host more jobs in both traditional and new or expanding industries. I also want to thank our federal partners and Vermont’s congressional delegation for supporting funding for the EDA.
“I hope this region’s Opportunity Zone designation continues to drive interest in public and private investment in the coming years.”
