Mayor Miro Weinberger Statement Regarding CEDO Director Peter Owens’ Tenure

“Late this afternoon, I received and accepted Peter Owens’ resignation as CEDO Director. I am very thankful for Peter’s commitment and service to Burlington over the last four years. During his time with the City, Peter has been a great listener, negotiator, and advocate for a better Burlington public sphere. During Peter’s time at CEDO, the Department continued its proud record of creating and preserving numerous permanently affordable housing units and committed the City to new efforts to broaden housing affordability. The northern waterfront and our downtown are already considerably improved as a result of Peter’s vision, and will be even better in the years ahead as a result of the work he set in motion. I will miss Peter’s good will, knowledge, and friendship.”

*Please see the attached resignation letter from CEDO Director Peter Owens to Mayor Miro Weinberger.
