More than 100 people turned out for a ribbon-cutting ceremony on October 25 to celebrate the opening of a long-awaited bus facility and housing project in downtown Montpelier. The $17 million structure includes 30 apartments and serves as a transit hub. City Manager Bill Fraser, who has been involved with efforts to complete the project for two decades, said “It is very satisfying to see it done. That whole part of town was a dirt lot and before that a junkyard and now it has transformed into an urban center rather than a parking wasteland.” Photos by Tom Brown
