Burlington City Council: Support a Strong Walk Bike Master Plan!

In spring 2016, the Burlington City Council will vote on the city's first-ever "Walk-Bike Master Plan." Done right, this plan will be a blueprint for making Burlington the kind of place where anyone can bike and walk anywhere in safety and comfort. You don't have to be a resident of Burlington to sign!  We all have a stake in the Queen City being a great place to walk and bike.



To the Burlington City Council,

I am writing to you to ask you to do three things to support the Burlington Walk-Bike Master Plan:

  1. Communicate to city staff and to fellow councilors that you want to see an ambitious plan that includes a specific timetable for implementation 
  2. Vote for the plan when it comes before Council and direct staff to implement it in accordance with the schedule outlined in the plan
  3. Actively support and vote for operating and capital budgets as needed to implement the plan, including both dedicated funding for bike infrastructure and increased staff capacity dedicated to walk-bike issues at the Department of Public Works

This issue is very important to me.  I will follow with interest any community and Council meetings where the plan is discussed and voted on, and hope I can count on your support for the plan at those meetings.
