Bennington Downtown Area-Wide Plan (Interactive Story Map)
Story Maps are a great tool for area-wide planning efforts. They can help various stakeholders understand the history and complexities of an area, and see alternatives to redevelopment play out in a visual way. This Interactive Story Map walks the reader through the history and redevelopment alternatives of the downtown area of Bennington, Vermont. The Story Map provides the community of Bennington with an informative, interactive explanation of the content contained in the Bennington Downtown Area-Wide Plan and is intended to summarize the findings and recommendations of the broader planning efforts.
