Designing the future of Burlington's downtown areas

By: Leslie Black-Plumeau

If you're walking down Church Street in Burlington this week and want to help shape the future of the city's downtown areas, stop by the PlanBTV design charrette underway in the former Ann Taylor store space at 1 Church Street.   

Read more in today's Burlington Free Press or watch a short video about PlanBTV.

This week-long effort to engage residents and visitors is part of a larger planning process that began last year.  Burlington received a sustainable communities planning grant from HUD to conduct the project.  The project included commissioning reports on a range of subjects affecting the city's downtown and waterfront areas, including a  housing needs assessment completed by VHFA.
