Sanders Visits Milton Cathedral Square Development

Posted April 13, 2017

Sen. Bernie Sanders visited Cathedral Square’s new Development, Elm Place, in Milton on Tuesday. Elm Place is Vermont’s first housing facility built to “Passive House” standards; the building has no central heating system, but is able to maintain its temperature even during the coldest winter days due to a state of the art ventilation system. The amount of heat used for the entire building is equivalent to that of a single family home.

Sanders remarked upon the importance of reducing prescription drug prices and funding services like SASH – support and services at home – that allow people to age in place while providing them with necessary primary care. The programs serves to keep seniors out of the emergency room while keeping Medicare costs down.
