Senator Patrick Leahy makes remarks at the Church Street Marketplace 30th Anniversary Celebration. The event features the dedication of the 124’ x 16’ Pierre Hardy mural, “Everyone Loves A Parade,” covering the length of the alley-side wall of the Banana Republic store at 56 Church Street. The event also features remarks by the local architect who designed the marketplace, Bill Truex; business leader Patrick Robins, who played a key role in establishment of the marketplace; and former marketplace Executive Director Molly Lambert, under whose leadership business on Church Street grew and thrived.
As downtowns faced new competition from shopping malls in the late 1970s, Leahy obtained the federal funding necessary to establish the Church Street Marketplace, which has since become one of the most heralded shopping and dining areas in the country. Since the creation of the Marketplace, Leahy has secured more than $14 million in federal funding. These funds have recently been used to fund the ongoing “Lights On” project currently under construction, the extension of the Marketplace to King Street, and side street improvements like those on Pearl Street.
