ARPA Committee Report (PDF)
Public participation and involvement in the Committee’s work is a high priority. The
Committee will support the Selectboard in soliciting ideas, working with idea project owners and
receiving feedback from the voters and taxpayers of Roxbury pertaining to ARPA awards and
uses of the funding.
Two public informational meetings were held on Sept. 1, 2022 and Sept. 17, 2022.
We plan to have a to-be-determined project submission period for Roxbury taxpayers & voters.
We will work closely with project owners as needed.
After developing a list of projects and before putting forward recommendations to the
Selectboard, we will again seek Roxbury taxpayer and voter input in ranking the selected
CV Fiber Municipal Grant
One project that is under a tight timeline constriction outside of the process defined above, is a
decision on the outstanding CV Fiber matching grant. Announced in March 2022, the matching
program expired on Sept. 15, 2022. The Committee needs to make a recommendation to the
Selectboard on this as soon as possible after a public meeting.
