VermontBiz Features Killington Resort's and Great Gulf's pledge of $700,000 to support workforce housing
Vermont Business Magazine Vermont’s Killington Resort, the largest ski and snowboard destination in Eastern North America, and part of POWDR, announces that in partnership with Great Gulf, it will donate a total of $700,000 to the Town of Killington. The money is allocated to fund 70 acres of land in Killington on which to develop workforce housing, part of the area’s ongoing Killington Forward initiative. Killington Resort is committed to supporting the community through Play Forever, an initiative which aims to strengthen the place where we live with donations such as this one.
The 70-acre plot is located off Nanak Way in Killington and will be serviced by the new municipal water system being installed over the next several years. The land is mapped for a total of 250-300 housing units, with 6-8 multifamily apartment buildings and 16-20 duplex or single-family homes with ample green space.
“We are excited to offer this funding to the town of Killington in support of future workforce housing in the area,” says Killington President and General Manager Mike Solimano. “We all know the area is in need of this type of development, which will provide housing for the workers who support the whole community and will be integral to the success of the new ski village by Great Gulf.”
