Gray on the Move
The Town Offices once located at 6 Shaker Road have moved to the newly renovated Pennell Institute building at 24 Main Street. What was a run down brick schoolhouse is now a restored structure and fully functional Town Office facility. The aptly named Henry Pennell Municipal Complex contains the Town Clerks, Financing, Assessing, Planning, Code Enforcement, Recreation, and Community Television Departments for the Town of Gray.
Multiple projects ongoing strive to revitalize our Village Main Street area. The Gray Community Economic Development Committee is currently working on a master plan for the town owned properties on Shaker Rd. The goal is to make these properties more marketable for sale or redevelopment.
