Burlington Town Center expected to create much-needed affordable housing and jobs

Posted by: Leslie Black-Plumeau on 10/27/2016

In addition to construction jobs, the proposed Burlington Town Center plans include creation of 55 new units of affordable housing and 219 market rate homes.  Housing advocates and community leaders joined Burlington Mayor Weinberger today in City Hall Park to discuss ways in which the proposed Town Center would help address the needs of the region’s residents for more affordable homes located near jobs and services. 

Among every 3 Chittenden County renter households, 1 spends more than half of their income for housing.  This creates unsustainable financial pressure and housing instability for struggling, mostly low-income Vermonters.
