The back of the campus goes through the former LeGrange Farm and into New Scotland. There, pad sites are being cleared, but the LeGrange family cemetery has been left undisturbed. A fence was put around the gravesite and is showcased in the middle of a large roundabout. The historic LeGrange homestead can be viewed to the left of the campus.

“We worked with the state Historic Preservation Office on the project, and everything was done with the utmost care,” said Morelli.

A nature trail is in the works to be developed around the campus. Sidewalks and walking paths will be installed so workers can easily move to other businesses within Vista to eat lunch or shop. The roadways were also made extra wide so bike paths can be created, a goal of the town’s comprehensive plan.

“Our goal is to get in front of the town for site plan approval for future projects within the next month or two,” said Deforest.
