The Writing’s on the Wall

MONTPELIER, Vt.- Christ Church leaders are asking residents to pick up a marker and write down suggestions on how they can better serve the community.

Instead of using paper, a wall surrounding the courtyard during renovations is where people can let them know.

The Christ Church courtyard is really the only green space downtown and is used heavily by the public as a spot to eat lunch or enjoy concerts.

The church is sprucing it up by installing new paver stones and landscaping.

We asked people what they think about their mission.

“Sort of emerging of new projects, people coming together. Ideas and dreams,” said Jen Lashua, Montpelier Resident.

“What they’ve set up here is an example of their community outreach. Their desire to involve the community and their mission locally, which they deserve a lot of credit for that,” said Mayor John Hollar.

Church leaders hope this will affect change.

Some people wrote Montpelier needs homeless shelters, recycling bins in public places, and even a skate park.
