Welcome to the BWBC

The Burlington Walk/Bike Council is an all-volunteer advisory council to the City of Burlington. We work closely with and advise the Department of Public Works and the Department of Parks & Recreation on infrastructure improvements and policy changes for bicycling and walking. The council also leads advocacy efforts and organizes events and activities that promote and celebrate walking and biking in Burlington and beyond. Anyone interested in making Burlington a better and safer place for bicycling and walking is encouraged to attend our meetings generally held on the 4th Thursday of each month in City Hall Room 12.

PlanBTV Walk-Bike Implementation Feedback Committee 75 minutes
This will be the first meeting of the newly-formed PlanBTV Walk-Bike Implementation Feedback Committee, a joint effort of the BWBC and Local Motion. The purpose of this committee is to provide DPW with feedback on the on-street walk-bike improvements being implemented in accordance with Burlington’s newly adopted PlanBTV Walk-Bike. This will include proactive review and comments on projects that are still in the planning phases, as well as providing feedback on work that has already been implemented. Our first meeting will include an overview of the mission of the committee, introduction of the members, an update on current walk-bike improvement projects, and discussion of how the committee can most effectively accomplish its mission. Time permitting, we may also discuss some of the current projects being implemented.

See you there!
