Vermont National Guard looking to expand in Morrisville

The Vermont Army National Guard wants to build a new maintenance facility and possibly a new armory in Morrisville.

The Vermont Department of Buildings and General Services has identified four landowners as prospective sellers of between 16 and 100 acres of land with frontage on Vermont Routes 12, 15 or 100.

The size of the parcel will determine the guard’s eventual use of the new facility.

Colonel Robert Gingras says the Guard has a shortage of armory square footage, statewide.

Gingras says the Department of Defense had earmarked up to $10 million for the Morrisville project.

The project is part of a change in mission for the 86th Brigade. The brigade recently changed from a heavy armor unit to light infantry.
