first_imgGovernor Jim Douglas threw his support behind efforts to redevelop downtown Winooski and with that support comes loan guarantees from the state that the federal government and developers have said are essential to the project’s success.The Governor said that he believes the Winooski Falls Riverfront Redevlopment Project can work, and that he expects to be able to provide the guaranty required by US department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) for the approximately $22 million loan that HUD will make to Winooski for affordable housing.”The City of Winooski has been working very hard for many years to realize its vision for a revitalized downtown,” Governor Douglas Said. “I too, share that vision and since coming to office in January have worked with city officials, and others to assist in transforming that vision into reality.”Douglas said that the downtown revitalization project is important to him for three primary reasons, fighting sprawl and creating affordable housing and hundreds of new jobs.Douglas noted that Winooski’s largest employer, the Vermont Student Assistance Corporation, would be preserved in the Winooski downtown by the construction of new headquarters and more than 100 acres of public recreation areas and open space would be maintained.The project will create 600 units of housing, 125 of which will be designated for low and moderate income Vermonters.Construction of the project could begin as early as Spring 2004. The first phase, in conjuction with infrastructure improvements, will be the construction of the new VSAC headquarters, an integrated parking garage, and commercial and residential establishments. The total project will be phased in over the next 4 to 5 years.This $175 million project will have $40 million in state loan guarantees and grants, infrastructure improvements or tax credits from entities such as Vermont Housing Financing Agency when it is completed.This will be the largest revitalization project in Vermont’s history. VSAC will have new headquarters. The historic Champlain Mill will be rehabilitated into a mixed residential and commercial building. Riverfront condominiums will be built. Two rental-housing complexes will also be built.last_img read more
