Come tell the Burlington Dept of Public Work’s Commission how important two new sidewalk projects are! They will be early on the agenda of the BDPW Commission meeting this Thursday 2/18 at 6:15 pm.
- Flynn Ave between Pine and Shelburne: Completing the sidewalk on the North side of Flynn. There are various configurations of this stretch of sidewalk. Just last summer, parking was eliminated in the South wind condo neighborhood, and parking was allowed on Flynn; this made the entrance to Oakledge Park treacherous for walkers, since the parking essentially narrowed the street, and there is currently no sidewalk for people to use.
- Willard St. sidewalk connecting existing Deforest sidewalk to the Cliff and Willard intersection. There are several design alternatives; one being proposed accommodates a neighbor who would lose on-street parking if the preferred plan is built. The alternative would use a mid-block crosswalk which is much less safe than crossing at a stop sign.
The Commission needs to hear your voices to know how important good sidewalks are in Burlington!
