Mayor Miro Weinberger Statement in Response to City Council’s Unanimous Approval of Mediated Settlement Agreement Relating to Browns Court-Eagles Place Project

“I am pleased that, as a result of the mediation session between the City, Champlain College, and other parties, and tonight’s unanimous City Council action, there is now a broad consensus in favor of moving forward with a major, mixed use redevelopment of the Browns Court parking lot and Eagles Club site.  This settlement agreement represents a major step forward toward much-needed downtown housing, an easing of student housing pressure in existing neighborhoods, new property tax revenues for the City, and greater downtown vibrancy and economic opportunity.”
