Library and Town Center Project wins Place-making Award!

In 2017, as the New Library and Town Center project was being conceived, project goals included not only a 21st century library and the conservation of the historic Town Hall, but also "strengthening the commercial, civic and social center of Shelburne Village." A 2021 Vermont Public Places Award recognizes the strong work towards achieving this third goal!
"This awards program recognizes special public spaces, the corridors that connect them, or networks of public spaces which have been defined or enriched by planning or design, as well as regulations that promote positive public uses and benefits. "

Kudos to Vermont Integrated Architecture, P.C. Neagley and Chase Construction Company , Town of Shelburne, Vermont and Paintbox Garden ( for your hard work and achievement!
