LYNDON — On Thursday, the Development Review Board heard plans for a $16.9 million National Guard Readiness Center. The Vermont Military Department seeks a conditional use permit and site plan approval to proceed with the project. The DRB will issue a decision within 45 days. The Northeast Regional Readiness Center would be located next to Vermont State University-Lyndon on a 36-acre strip of land between Back Center Road and Interstate 93. It would disturb approximately 10 acres. The project comprises a 40,400 square foot, two-story readiness center, 82-space parking lot, and 5,000 square foot cold storage building for vehicles and equipment. The facility would house Alpha Troop, 1st Squadron, 172nd Cavalry (MTN), and add more units in the future.
