For the last year and a half, the City of Burlington undertook a collaborative planning process with community residents and stakeholders to create a Comprehensive Plan. Burlington Vision Plan 2040 outlines important policies and strategies related to land use and development, downtown, housing and neighborhoods, open spaces and natural resources, transportation, historic preservation, quality of life, infrastructure and capital improvements, and community sustainability and resiliency.
The plan visualizes and assesses the appropriate land use mix, community character, housing, and economic development needs – while considering planning strategies for sustainable growth, enhancing community appearance, and adding new recreational and open space amenities.
