The Moran Plant, built in 1953, is a historic coal fired power plant known for its architecture and innovation. It is currently a derelict structure located on Burlington's waterfront in the heart of downtown.
You can view Mayor Weinberger's "Open Letter to the People of Burlington" of July 2, 2012, about the future direction for the redevelopment of the Moran site here.
As part of the Moran Revisioned process, the City is launching the Waterfront and Downtown Public Investment Action Plan (PIAP).
What does this mean for the Moran Plant Re-visioning?
This is an expansion of the re-visioning process for the Moran Plant that places it within a more comprehensive approach to public investment on the waterfront. The Moran Plant is located within the Waterfront TIF district and redevelopment proposals for it will be considered as part of this process. We anticipate that one or more concepts for the building and site will be considered as part of this process. The PIAP will ensure that potential public investment in Moran will be weighed against a wide range of other public investment opportunities.
The City will seek public comment on the PIAP at NPAs and through other community venues throughout the month of January. You are also invited to e-mail comments on the plan to CEDO Director Peter Owens (firstname.lastname@example.org) and to post your comments publicly at the Mayor’s Facebook page (www.facebook.com/MiroBTV). Our intent is to submit a finalized version of the plan for City Council approval at the January 28, 2013 meeting. For more information on the PIAP process and supporting documents, click here.
