Armory Reuse RFQ

The Town of Bennington has obtained a State of Vermont Municipal Planning Grant to develop a plan for the reuse of the soon to be vacated National Guard (“Armory”) building in Bennington’s downtown (100 Franklin Lane). The Vermont National Guard currently is completing renovations to the building, including environmental remediation work, in anticipation of relocating to a larger site on Bowen Road.

Upon relocation of the Guard operation to this new site, the Town will assume ownership of this strategically located building and the surrounding land/parking. The purpose of this planning project is to fully describe the property and building and to support efforts by the Town and other potential users to evaluate its suitability for various functions that meet identified community needs. The Town will use grant funds to hire a consultant who will work with a project steering committee to complete this investigation, prepare a report, and present the information to the Select Board and the public.
