LaFlammes Furniture Store Relocates
LaFlammes Furniture Store located at 239 West Main Street in Bennington, Vermont is OPEN FOR BUSINESS! The site, a former automobile sales and service facility, had been unoccupied for the past ten years. The BCRC Brownfield Redevelopment Program, funded through the Environmental Protection Agency, has completed numerous Environmental Site Assessments between 1998 and 2013. That program funded a Corrective Action Plan, prepared last year by the Johnson Company, for the LaFlamme property, addressing all of the identified environmental concerns on the site.
The project also has been approved for an environmental cleanup loan from the Vermont Brownfield Revolving Loan fund to implement the Corrective Action Plan. The Town of Bennington has also offered the LaFlammes up to $100,000 for redevelopment through the town’s revolving loan fund. The former LaFlammes Furniture property burned to the ground this past winter. We wish them many years of prosperity in their new home.
