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.

This month: The path ahead for BWBC

It’s 2017 and a New Year, full of challenges and opportunities. It’s also a good time for us to reflect on the mission of the Burlington Walk/Bike Council.

Join us on Thursday, January 26, 5:30 pm at 645 Pine St. for a lively discussion of the path ahead for the BWBC.

  • How can we be most effective in helping to make Burlington more walkable and bikeable, and less car-dependent?
  • How can we best complement and enhance the work being done by the other parties involved in that discussion (DPW, Parks, Local Motion, Bikeable Burlington Now, etc.)?
  • How can we combine inspiration, communication, and action to move us forward?

The steering committee has a few ideas to share, and we’d also like to hear yours.

Note that our location is different this month because our normal location was not available.

See you there!

p.s. - If you can’t come to the meeting, we’d still love to hear your thoughts – email them to any member of the steering committee, listed on the About Us page, or feel free to talk to us in person.
