Request for Letters of Interest - Plain Street Lot

 Issue Date: March 12th, 2024

 Overview: Like many Vermont communities, the City of Barre has a housing shortage made worse by the flood of July 2023. The City is offering a vacant lot on Plain Street that measures .20 acres in the North End neighborhood (see aerial photograph of the location). The City is issuing a request for letters of interest to develop this location for housing. The successful applicant will present a plan that develops the parcel for residential use. The City will consider a significantly reduced price for the location.               

Submissions will be received until Friday, May 24th at 4:30pm.

Letters of Interest that are submitted will be reviewed and rated by a committee that will include representation from the City Council, City staff, and other parties as determined by the City Council. 

 Submissions that reflect the goals of the City to establish mixed housing for Barre may be invited to submit a full proposal.

 The website below will be used to provide updated information about this process.
