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: Walk-Bike Action Plan for 2017

Join the Burlington Walk-Bike Council this Thursday, Feb. 23 at 5:30 for a report from DPW engineer Nicole Losch on the ambitious workplan for walk-bike improvements in 2017. There are a large number of projects being planned for this year, so come hear about what's coming and how you can get involved. With the passage of the capital budget last fall we actually have funding to get some stuff done!

In addition, with the Planning Commission's approval of planBTV Walk Bike in January, the final plan is advancing for City Council's consideration (date TBD). Nicole will provide an update of revisions that have been made to the draft plan and next steps for the plan.

When: Thursday, February 23, 5:30 to 7 pm

Where: Assessor's Public Records room, City Hall (on the ground floor at the opposite end of the corridor from our usual meeting space)

Why: Because we're excited to hear about all the great improvements coming our way, and how we can help make it happen!

See you there!
