Woodstock gets grant for Va. 42 project

Daily staff report

Woodstock received a state grant to help the town's efforts to enhance the Va. 42 gateway.

The town also has been picked to work with Virginia Tech students and professors in the Community Design Assistance Center on the gateway enhancement design. The Department of Forestry awarded the grant of $4,811 for the student-led project.

Students and a professor in the school's landscape architecture program met with town officials Wednesday to do some preliminary work, according to Jane Beasley, Woodstock's business enhancement coordinator.

The project looks at ways the town can improve the Va. 42 corridor from the Interstate 81 interchange to the intersection of U.S. 11, Beasley said.

"What they're going to do is come up with what we hope are creative ideas of ways of making that a little more enticing to the visitors and getting them to explore a little bit more of Woodstock," Beasley said.

The group will present a draft of the conceptual plans to stakeholders in early April, according to Beasley. By mid-May Beasley said she expects the group to present a finished set of designs.
