Battenkill Sports is hoping to move to Bonnet Street sometime this fall pending a zoning change by the Town of Manchester. Our proposed new location is in an area being considered for a new Commercial 3 zone (like Elm Street in Manchester). The Planning Commission will hold a public hearing at 7:00 PM on August 17, 2015 at the Manchester Town Offices. Please come to the hearing to learn more and support the creation of our new bike shop. You can also read the minutes (below) from the last Planning Commission meeting. Thank you -Barrack…
