MIDDLEBURY — Proponents of two major building proposals in downtown Middlebury are hoping to secure millions in federal grant money to help underwrite their projects, both of which would serve the public good.
They are concurrent efforts to expand and renovate the Ilsley Public Library at 75 Main St., and to construct a new childcare facility on the site of Otter Creek Child Center at 150 Weybridge St. While it’s still early in the planning processes for both initiatives, each could cost around $10 million, according to preliminary estimates.
