(Host) Governor Howard Dean was in Brattleboro today to sign a bill that will help revitalize Vermont’s downtowns, town and village centers. The bill is an expansion of the downtown bill that was passed 1998.
The new bill provides more tax credits for the rehabilitation of buildings and development on upper floors. It also provides tax credits for improved access and fire protection in buildings. The bill also encourages state government to consider locating offices in downtowns.
