ST. ALBANS — Northwestern Vermont just got a striking opportunity to develop its workforce.
The Working Communities Challenge selected a team of northwestern Vermont organizations as one of
eight grant award winners.
That means our area now has professional assistance in concretely planning how to develop our local
workforce, as well as $15,000 to fund the six-month planning process.
The Northwest Regional Planning Commission led this area’s application process, with aid from the
Franklin County Industrial Development Corporation, United Way of Northwestern Vermont, Franklin, Grand Isle Restorative Justice, RiseVT and Northwestern Medical Center, following on those organizations’ October 2018 discussions of the so-called “Formidable Four” — four issues hurting our local economy: affordable housing, child care, transportation and substance use disorders.

BURLINGTON — Tim Camisa’s museum of Spavin Cure relics has gone from idea to reality — just not in
Enosburg Falls. At least, not yet.
Right now, relics Camisa collected, many rescued from the Spavin Cure’s former production site on
North Main Street, sit on display in the front of Camisa’s Vermont antiques shop, right beside Kohl’s in
the University Mall in South Burlington.
It’s nothing personal. Camisa said the space where he intends to open the museum, a room in the
former Spavin Cure plant building, just isn’t finished yet, although Camisa continues restoring that
building, piece by piece, despite ongoing vandalism. Nearly every one of the building’s windows have
been smashed and then replaced by Camisa, out of his own pocket, and he found two fresh bullet holes
in the back of the building during recent renovations.
ENOSBURGH — This community’s revitalization shot forward in 2019, through a downtown planning
project, hiring an economic development director, planning new recreation elds and more.
The SE Group nalized its “Vital Village” plan this summer, its public input-based proposal to improve
downtown Enosburg Falls.
Consultants identified top projects consultants believe “would be good starting points for the
Village because they have synergy with each other and potential to catalyze future projects.”
