Projects in the Works
planBTV in the Works is all about implementation.
How are all these planning efforts being actually implemented on the ground? What happens with all those great ideas that make it in the plans? Well, this is where you can learn about it all. We'll show you the relationships between everything that is happening and you will find links to the projects themselves for more information.
Burlington Town Center Public Process
Visit the website for more information on opportunities to get engaged and shape the redevelopment of the Burlington Town Center. This is directly implemtating planBTV-Downtown & Waterfront Master Plan.
The Downtown Parking Improvement Initiative is working hard to implement the new parking management system for all of Burlington beginning Fall 2014. The new improvements aim to make parking more convenient and improve the experience for businesses, residents, and visitors alike.
Burlington Bike Path
The Bike Path Rehabilitation Project proposes the rehabilitation of the approximate 7.5 mile multi-use path that runs through downtown Burlington and along the Lake Champlain waterfront. The project limits extend throughout the entire City of Burlington beginning with the southern terminus of the project at the path intersection with Queen City Park Road and extending northerly to the Winooski River Bridge.
Waterfront Access North
The Waterfront Access North project involves rebuilding the end of Lake Street, realigning and upgrading portions of the bike path, brownfield remediation, utility undergrounding, new skatepark, sidewalks, plantings, and lighting improvements, and all other needed public improvements.
Downtown Form-Based Code
A form-based code is a land development regulation that fosters predictable built results and a high-quality public realm by using physical form (rather than separation of uses) as the organizing principle for the code. A form-based code offers a powerful alternative to conventional zoning regulation. We are developing a Form-Based Code for the downtown and waterfront area of the City as implementation of the planBTV-Downtown & Waterfront Master Plan. (Form-Based Code Institute)
