Great Streets BTV Presentation

Wednesday, September 14, 2016
6:30 pm – 8:00 pm

Contois Auditorium, City Hall, Burlington

The Great Streets Initiative is a culmination of many years of planning and project development, including the public vote in March of 2014 to use the City’s downtown TIF district to make new investments in the downtown’s public infrastructure to ensure that Burlington residents have a downtown that is a vibrant, walkable, and sustainable urban center. Led by Suisman Urban Design, a team of City officials and designers will build upon a myriad of previous plans developed with the residents of Burlington, including Imagine City Hall Park, planBTV Downtown and Waterfront, and the Transportation Plan to: Create standards for the design and construction of downtown streets; Develop a conceptual plan for Main Street (Battery to Union) and St. Paul Street (Main to Maple); Prepare plans for the reconstruction of Main Street from Church to Pine; and Advance concept plans for the reconstruction of City Hall Park.

These plans will be focused on improvements to the public right of way, including sidewalk details, street trees, stormwater improvements, transit details, lighting, and other improvements that impact the public streetscape.

Come join us for a presentation on Wednesday, September 14th from 6:30–8:00 p.m. at Contois Auditorium, City Hall.

If you cannot attend the presentation on Wednesday night, we’ll have two encore presentations on Thursday, September 15th at 9:00 a.m. and 12 noon, City Hall.

The presentation will provide more information about the history of the Great Streets Initiative and the projects involved. The formal presentation will be followed by two breakout sessions to review and provide input on the concepts for the street design standards and the Main Street and St. Paul Street redesigns. The main presentation will be on Wednesday, September 14 at 6:30pm in Contois Auditorium. If you aren’t able to make it, we’ll have two encore presentations on September 15 at 9:30am and 12:00pm in Contois Auditorium. Each presentation will provide the same information—please join us for one of them!
