City Center

In 1983 a fire destroyed the Cody Building on the corner of State and Main Street in Montpelier, leaving a vacant lot at the center of town. The HUD RDAG program played a critical role in development at the site. The project was seen as crucial to the revitalization of the city's downtown.
