MIDDLEBURY —The Addison County Regional Planning Commission (ACRPC) purchased a used Toyota Prius on March 24 with funds from its regular operating budget. Then, at the end of May, the planning commission went to a third-party provider in Boston called Hymotion to convert the car into a plug-in hybrid using federal stimulus funds.

Essentially, what Hymotion did was take out the spare tire in the trunk and replace it with a rechargeable 5-kWh battery pack. The car is now a hybrid with extra energy storage in the back that is charged using an outlet.

Community gardeners cultivate new home

MIDDLEBURY — After a year’s hiatus, the Middlebury Area Community Garden has finally found a new home at Porter Medical Center.

A shake-up last spring at Otter Creek Brewing left the garden homeless — since its founding in the spring of 2009, it had been based on the brewery’s property. It was April when the garden’s steering committee discovered that the space would be unavailable, and by then it was too late to find and prepare another location before the growing season.
