Shaftsbury considering work camp

Print More

Shaftsbury officials are trying to decide if the community should become host to the state’s next corrections work camp.

A town committee has visited the existing work camp in St. Johnsbury.

Select Board Chairman Wynn Metcalfe says a lot of work remains to be done because the camp could have a huge impact on the town.

The Vermont Corrections Department is looking for a location for a new work camp and would like to build it in southern Vermont.

Metcalfe says one of the biggest questions is whether there’s an appropriate 10-acre parcel of land in Shaftsbury to host the camp.
