Winooski Avenue Corridor Improvements

In March 2020, City Council directed the Department of Public Works to implement key recommendations of the Winooski Avenue Corridor Study. Implementation will be phased across several years.   


North Winooski Avenue Parking Management Plan

Mayor Weinberger and Presdident Tracy reviewed candidate applications and selected four community stakeholders to join the City Council Transportation, Energy and Utility Committee members to serve on a joint City Council-Stakeholder Committee for the North Winooski Avenue Parking Management Plan (PMP). The Commitee will review and approve the scope of work, methodology, and public engagement plan for the PMP; will receive periodic updates on the plan from the project team (DPW, Chittenden County Regional Planning Commission, and consultants from RSG); review recommendations of the plan, and will approve the final PMP after it is presented to the Ward 2/3 NPA. Committee meetings will be virtual and open to the public. 

More info can be found at the Chittenden County Regional Plan's Commission website, including the Corridor Study & Parking Management Plan:
