CHT has reached an agreement with the Roman Catholic Diocese of Burlington to lease and then purchase the St. Joseph’s School on Allen Street in Burlington’s Old North End. The former Catholic School has been home to Robin’s Nest Children Center, Association of Africans Living in Vermont, and the Janet S. Munt Family Room providing needed services to the community. The purchase will allow these programs to continue in the building along with a new tenant, the City of Burlington’s Parks & Recreation Department.
CHT will host a meeting at the school (20 Allen Street) on November 30 to let the community know about the plans and solicit feedback. The meeting will begin at 5:30 with pizza, with a presentation at 6pm. Old North End residents are encouraged to attend.
