Executive Summary

coverWhy Woodstock? Why the East End?

Thousands of tourists and second homeowners flock to Woodstock every year to enjoy its historic and quintessential New England village feel, beautiful surroundings, numerous shops and restaurants, and multitude of outdoor activities. With top-rated schools, abundant community and cultural events, and easy access to the nearby interstate system and regional employment centers, Woodstock is also increasingly a sought after place to live and work. This vibrant community offers exciting opportunity for new business and residential growth.

The East End area of Woodstock is an important gateway to the Town’s historic village, and has tremendous potential for adaptive reuse of historic structures and construction of new infill projects. Its many attributes and opportunities to support new growth and investment include its location along busy US Route 4, available public infrastructure and utilities and frontage along the Ottauquechee River. Perhaps most importantly, this is a community that is demonstrably supportive of new development and redevelopment.
