Burlington announces the launch of public input Web tool For PlanBTV
The Planning & Zoning Department has announced the launch of the planBTV Public Input Web Tool. For the past several months, the planBTV team has been gathering public input on the project through different avenues: Neighborhood Improvement Night meetings in November, Design Charrette in January, Facebook page, etc. We have now brought all those comments and ideas within one comprehensive database and web tool.
Too often during planning processes such as planBTV, the public does not get to see the breath of comments that are received and gathered by the project team. The planBTV Public Input Web Tool will close that gap by making everything available and open to the public. The tool will not only allow people to show their support for some of the ideas generated before, but also give them the opportunity to add new ideas and/or comments that might have been overlooked so far in the process. We invite anyone and everyone to visit the site and continue to provide their input.
planBTV is the preparation of a master land use and development plan for Burlington’s Downtown and Waterfront area. The overall objective of this project is to provide a comprehensive guide for Downtown and Waterfront development that fosters sustainable economic growth over the next 10-20 years. We hope to develop focused, actionable, area-specific strategies to ensure the vitality of the central core of our community and enable us to achieve our community vision.
The success of this process and its future implementation rests on everyone’s participation, input and engagement. This is just one more way for stakeholders provide feedback and take part in the process. To access the tool, visit our website at: http://www.burlingtonvt.gov/PlanBTV/PublicInputTool/.
