Mayor Weinberger Statement Regarding Council Adoption of New planBTV: Downtown Code



Burlington, VT – Mayor Miro Weinberger released the following statement today regarding Burlington City Council’s adoption on November 13 of the new planBTV: Downtown Code:


“The City Council’s adoption of the planBTV: Downtown Code this past Monday, after seven years of planning and inclusive public process, represents one of Burlington’s most significant land use policy changes in decades and an important step forward in reducing our energy use and climate impact.  Downtown residents and property owners now have greater clarity about what kind of investment the City wants to see in the years ahead, future buildings will be greener and better-designed, and there will be a clear path for converting parking lots and other under-used lots into job, housing, and cultural opportunities.  In short, we now have a zoning ordinance that supports the community’s vibrant vision for the future.  I want to express my gratitude to Andy Montroll, the Chair of the Form-Based Code Committee and the Planning Commission, for his skillful leadership of this effort, to the entire committee of Councilors and Planning Commissioners for their hard work, and to Planning and Zoning Director David White for his outstanding leadership on this important effort.”
