Plans for Vermont 'pocket park' include chalk wall
Jul. 20, 2017
BENNINGTON, Vt. (AP) — Plans for a new park in Bennington now include a piece of public art — a chalk wall that could host visitors' thoughts and art.
The Bennington Banner reports (http://bit.ly/2uFvp1A ) the "pocket park" was reviewed by the Development Review Board Tuesday night. Michael McDonough, interim director of economic and community development, says chalk wall could also be used for a question of the day for people to answer.
Members entered deliberative session after the meeting. Dan Monks, planning director, said Wednesday that he will issue a written decision in the next couple of days.
Monks says he expects the final decision to be approval with a condition that restricts smoking within the park.
