R1 Success Story: Richmond Creamery, Richmond, VT

An environmentally sustainable development being created on the site of a former dairy factory in Richmond, Vermont, has brought new businesses to the heart of this town of 5,000 people with the help of a Vermont‐led program. The development at the former Richmond Creamery site was selected to receive support from the Brownfield Economic Revitalization Alliance (BERA), which joins government agencies and private investors in a team effort to revitalize high‐priority brownfield properties. The Richmond Creamery site is also the first project supported by the alliance where the cleanup and redevelopment have been completed.
