State and local leaders meeting about Green Mountain College
POUTLNEY, Vt. (AP) — Vermont state and local leaders are going to meet to discuss how to make the most of the upcoming closure of Green Mountain College.
The Rutland Herald reports that Paul Costello of the Vermont Council on Rural Development says his organization is considering forming a steering committee to focus on keeping the local economy stable after the college closes. Costello is facilitating a meeting in Poultney April 7 and says the president of the college will give an update on the current status and potential prospects.
Town Manager Paul Donaldson says he believes the college is in discussions with three potential investors.
Green Mountain College announced earlier this year that the school would be closing its doors in May. The college cited declining enrollment as the main reason for closure.
