City Planning

Implementing planBTV

Our plans are only as good as our willingness and ability to implement them - otherwise they just sit on a shelf collecting dust.

Here in Burlington we take implementation very seriously, and work hard to ensure that the plans we make include detailed and strategic direction as to how we are actualy going to make our future vision a reality. This allows us to measure our progress and refine what we are doing as necessary.

Implementing the plans we create typically takes either or both regulatory (adopting local ordinances) and non-regulatory (making local investments in infrastructure and administering city-led programs) forms, and are the responsibility of all parts of City government.

Key areas for implementing planBTV include:

  • District or topical plans that allow us to get into greater level of detail of analysis and strategy
  • Amendments to the Burlington Comprehensive Development Ordinance (BCDO) that guide development decisions and investments
  • Capital Planning that guides public investments in infrastructure and facilities
  • Other special projects
