Springfield community conversation: Vermont’s progress & development

Saturday, November 16, 2019
11:00 am - 12:00 pm
Springfield Town Library
43 Main St
Springfield, VT

 

How has Vermont handled questions of development and immigration in the past, and how might those lessons be used to discuss a path forward?

Northern Vermont University professor Paul Searls will review themes and events featured in his new book “Repeopling Vermont: The Paradox of Development in the Twentieth Century” at the Springfield Town Library on Saturday, November 16 at 11:00 AM.

In his book, Searls highlights the stories of different communities and their responses to difficult questions as part of his inquiry into how Vermont balanced competing visions for the state in the last century.

Following Searls’s presentation, attendees will be invited to share their own perspectives on their communities. How can the lessons of history be used to frame planning going forward? What is important to preserve, and when is it important to move forward? How can different interests be balanced to create a Vermont that works for everyone?

This is free, accessible, and open to the public. The Springfield Town Library is located at 43 Main Streetin Springfield, Vermont. For more information, contact the Library at 802-885-3108 or stlas@vermontel.net
