Mayor Miro Weinberger Statement on New Conceptual Plan for Former Burlington College Land
 
“The community partners and property owner, Eric Farrell, have made progress with their new plan for the former Burlington College land. They have listened carefully to Burlingtonians and worked hard to create a concept that balances new public park space with the creation of much needed housing for Burlingtonians of all income levels. The proposed concept would complete a broad arc of public lakefront land stretching from Waterfront Park to North Beach for generations of Burlingtonians to enjoy.  While there are many important details that will need to be finalized in the months ahead, the new concept plan is a promising step towards achieving the City’s many, long-established goals for the property. I look forward to engaging further with the Burlington community about this opportunity.”
