MIDDLEBURY, Vt. (AP) - The Vermont town of Middlebury and Middlebury College are agreeing to jointly fund the construction of a new town hall and recreation center.
The proposal would need to be approved at a future Middlebury town meeting.
The cost of the projects would be $7.5 million, with the college contributing $5.5 million and the rest coming from the town.
Officials say the plan will create a new triangular public park and green space on the land currently occupied by the Town Hall and gymnasium. That land will be owned by Middlebury College.
