By: BNEWS

Are you interested in working to help shape the future of Burlington? Now is your chance. 

 

There is an open seat on the 20-member Master Plan Steering Committee that will be filled by the Planning Board. 

 

The Master Plan will be a document that establishes the overall vision for the town and the policies by which future growth and development will be guided. This report will be utilized by the Planning Department and Board as a basis for decision-making about land use planning and redevelopment for the Town of Burlington. 

 

The Burlington Comprehensive Master Plan process will roll out in three beginning with Phase 1: Community Character and Land Use. 

 

Phase II will follow closely encompassing Economic Development, Natural and Cultural Resources, Housing and Transportation. 

 

Phase III, Implementation and Strategies Plan, the most important piece, will tie everything together and chart the course for action.

 

As a member of the steering committee you would act as a liaison to your elected board and commission, assist in neighborhood outreach and guide policy decisions. 

 

The Planning Department is asking those interested in applying to contact them by March 1 for appointment at the March 3rd Planning Board Meeting. All interested individuals should contact the Planning Department at planning@burlington.org or 781. 270.1645. Include name, e-mail and phone number.
