Building for Our Community
Update - November 11th 2017
Ascutney Outdoors Center Update
Our building committee has been working tirelessly to finalize details prior to beginning construction of the AOC. After an unexpected delay related to the requirement of a sprinkler system, we have just recently received the state building permit. Although the construction season is quickly fading we are hopeful to start building the AOC later this month!
Tubing Lift Update
We're fully funded and excited to start construction on our tubing lift. However, the construction project must hold off until Spring of 2018 due o a delay with the state wetlands permit has been delayed, but we’re looking forward to kicking construction into high gear next Spring/Summer!
We’ve recently been presented with a wonderful new opportunity: two West Windsor families have offered to purchase and donate a 2,500’ high-quality, used Doppelmayr T-bar Lift ($75,000 cost) and pay for installation-related permitting expenses (expected $25,000 cost). We're pleased to report that fundraising is well underway for this T-Bar opportunity!
The lift has been purchased by the potential donors and has arrived in Brownsville. It is being stored on site and will be donated to Ascutney Outdoors once the AOC and Capital Campaign is fully funded ($125,000 to go of our $730,000 goal) and the T-Bar installation costs have been raised ($20,000 already raised, $80,000 to go). This is considered a ‘match’ project, so if you can’t wait to see a T-Bar up on ‘our mountain’ again, please consider making a donation to help make this lift opportunity become a reality!
Support from our community is key to our success and truly appreciated.
