Thank you Karen Lorentz for the informative and insightful article
on the history of the Killington Resort Ski Village. It comes at a
time when SP Land is in midst of Act 250 review on its plans for
the Ski Village. As was noted in the article many nuisance and
extortionate claims have been made in the past to stall development
at the resort. This seems to be currently the case with the current
Act 250 review.
A few months ago the Select Board unanimously agreed to support the
advancement of the Ski Village development in light of the economic
development initiatives the town has taken.
It was said that the development of the Ski Village would dwarf any
economic development efforts the town could make on its own.
Given this context, shouldn't the Town reconsider its business
relationships with those who seek to stall or undermine SP Land's
development efforts and make good on the Select Board's commitment
to expedite the process.
The Ski Village Development would accomplish what both the
Community Growth and Tax Reform Committees seek to do. It would
provide well paying jobs and an increased tax base to attract more
year round residents and ease the tax burden on the rest of
