Smart Growth in Action
AppleRidge, a new housing development under construction in Bennington, will offer new homeowners a neighborhood close to downtown shops, restaurants and schools when it is complete. Local developer Jack Appleman is building this 42-unit project adjacent to Bennington’s designated downtown. It will connect to the existing street network, including Routes 7 and 9. A unique project feature is the preservation of an existing historic home, and its incorporation into one of the development’s duplex units. The project is currently in its first phase, and builds on Bennington’s efforts to revitalize their community.
