The Great Streets Initiative is a culmination of many years of planning and project development, including the public vote in March of 2015 to use the City’s downtown TIF district to make new investments in the downtown’s public infrastructure, to ensure that Burlington residents have a downtown that is a vibrant, walkable and sustainable urban center. Through this initiative, we’ll advance several key projects envisioned by plans such as Imagine City Hall Park, planBTV Downtown and Waterfront Master Plan, and the Transportation Plan.
