BCRC’s Office and Staff Continue to Grow
The BCRC is welcoming Kiah Morris to the staff as a part-time employee who will be overseeing work funded by a Vermont Department of Health grant while also directing the Alliance for Community Transformations (ACT). Pete Domine also will be joining us as a part-time employee, working on solid waste management projects and transportation planning studies.
We’ll also be hosting two new SerVermont VISTA employees beginning in August. Elizabeth Thompson, a recent graduate of Cornell University’s landscape architecture/sustainable development program, will be focusing on energy conservation projects, local food systems planning, and mixed use development initiatives. Katie Emerson, an environmental studies graduate of Green Mountain College, will be supporting ACT youth and public health projects while also working to advance several “Walkable Bennington” and regional land conservation projects.
With current VISTA employee, Mickey McGlasson, staying on to help with energy planning and transportation project management, the BCRC will have its largest and most diverse staff ever (by far!) — accompanied by a need for more space. Fortunately, vacant space next door to our current office suite was available so we have signed a lease to occupy that area. Renovations are underway and should be available for occupancy by August 1. Stop by to meet everyone and see our new look!
