Whitefield is laying the foundation for future growth

WHITEFIELD – Whitefield is laying the foundation for future growth. Plans to overhaul a half-mile section of Union Street are taking shape, with work slated to begin in 2025. Town officials hope that grant money will cover 90 percent of the estimated $2.7 million project, and the project has already been awarded a $1.4 million congressional earmarks. Barring setbacks, Union Street would be the town’s third major infrastructure project in the past five years, the others being an $8.5 million wastewater treatment plant renovation and a multi-million dollar town-wide water system upgrade. Public Works director Rob Larson said those projects will support economic development in this rural North Country community.
