Notice about dogs in The Mile-Around Woods

New rules for dogs in The Mile-Around Woods went into effect on April 15. The new policies were adopted after a comment period for the public. See the current rules here, and read a summary of public comments https://northbennington.org/dog-comments here.

The kiosk above and the guide board below were created by sculptor Joe Chirchirillo as permanent fixtures in North Bennington. Matthew Perry, director of the Vermont Arts Exchange, says that the installations “have raised the bar for public art projects not only in our state but across the country. These two pieces really define our Village — funky and classy.” Joe Chirchirollo lives in North Bennington, and curates the annual NBOSS sculpture show. His work on the kiosk and guide board was supported by grants from the Vermont Art Council and The Fund for North Bennington, Inc., and the Village provided the sites.
