The Vermont Chamber of Commerce will honor longtime real estate developer Antonio Pomerleau as Citizen of the Year at a celebration next month.
Pomerleau turned 95 last month, and is still actively involved in development projects. For example, he’s investing in a major new commercial and manufacturing center announced last month for Newport.
He’s been an active commercial developer in the Burlington area for the past six decades, and has become a major donor to community causes.
Among his philanthropic contributions, Pomerleau has donated a million dollars each to St. Michael’s College, the Greater Burlington YMCA, and to the Irene Recovery Fund.
