Supporter Spotlight: Consigli Construction

In 1905 Peter Consigli, a skilled mason, established Peter Consigli & Sons in Milford, Massachusetts on the cornerstones of hard work, integrity and pride in craftsmanship. Over a century later, Consigli has grown from a local business into one of the largest general contractors in the Northeast. The Consigli culture is about caring and being involved in the communities the employees work and live in. In 2017, and continuing into this year, our local Pleasant Valley Consigli has supported Rebuilding Together and the work we do for our community. 


Thank you again for your support and partnership with Rebuilding Together Dutchess County, we look forward to the great work to be done in the years to come.

Community Revitalization Collaboration: 
Carpe Aestatem
(Seize the Summer)

A vibrant and determined groundswell of community activism and collaboration in Poughkeepsie’s Northside has seized the warm summer months. Grassroots organizations and local nonprofits continue their efforts to mobilize individuals in the community to take part in cleaning, repairing, and creating shared spaces and infrastructure, asserting the energetic and close-knit nature of the neighborhood, and fighting for its visibility and autonomy with collective action. 

Last Saturday’s restoration day at College Hill Park – a united effort among the City’s public works department, Community Matters 2, and the local affiliate of MASS Design Group, the Hudson Valley Design Lab – brought together scores of volunteers to implement a colorful local design submission for the park’s basketball court on North Clinton Street. The park restoration stands a testament to the power of the city’s residents to reclaim neglected and under-maintained areas and redirect them toward united goals, fostering a unique sense of place and ultimately deterring displacement. As the summer comes to a close, the energy and determination to secure affordable housing and promote a safe and healthy place to live for all is far from dimming – be sure to have a look at the Community Matters 2 Facebook page as well as our Facebook page for before and after photos of the court, many happy friendship-bracelet makers at our table, and exciting announcements of more community days and projects to come!
