Diversity & Equity Strategic Plan Completed: Over the last two years, the Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Committee and the Vermont Partnership for Fairness & Diversity worked to complete the City of Burlington Diversity & Equity Strategic Plan (the Plan), which was communicated to the City Council on June 23, 2014.
Parking in Burlington: The Department of Public Works, the Burlington Business Association, and the Community & Economic Development Office have been working for the last several months on a City-wide parking initiative approved by Burlington City Council in early 2013. This initiative aims to improve and update Burlington's parking system, which does not operate at optimal efficiency, is unresponsive to market demand, and is reliant on outdated technology. A 2011 study reported that 35% of parking spaces were vacant at peak times throughout the City of Burlington. We can do a better job of managing and fully utilizing our parking assets. In order for Burlington to remain vibrant and economically strong, we must address the parking problems that customers often report.
