There are a lot of big economic developments underway in Newport these days. Among them, the recent expansion of Jay Peak Resort, a $12.8 million renovation project at the Newport Airport, and the impending arrival of ANC Biotech, which is expected to create 250 direct jobs and around 2,000 indirect jobs.
VPR's Jane Lindholm talks with Patricia Sears, Executive Director for the Newport City Renaissance Corporation, about these and other efforts to bring more money, jobs and tourism to this small city on the Canadian border.
