Duxbury: Grant Awarded to Fund Downtown Initiative Program

The Town of Duxbury has just been awarded grant funding through the Downtown Initiative Program that may be used to improve Hall’s Corner.

That’s Duxbury Planning Director, Valerie Massard, who says the town is also on board since this particular intersection has been problematic.

Members of The District Local Technical Assistance Program, who awarded the money, did extensive studies on the area in 2014.

This grant will serve as an interim step from the planning phase, to then zoning the area appropriately.
