Major Impact Developments, pre-application neighborhood meetings

Proposed requirement for Major Impact development proposals to hold one or more pre-application neighborhood public meetings. This comes in follow-up to the Open Gov recommendations from a couple of years ago (thanks to Councilor Bushor who pushed it forward, and to NPAs who testified and urged adoption) The Planning Commission has been working on this with the NPA’s,,,  To read the proposal, click here.  

There is a Neighborhood Meeting Guide which outlines the meeting requirements. These links are Google.docs. Email Planning Dept direct if you want copies sent to you: DEWhite@ci.burlington.vt.us 

City Council will vote on the ordinance change. Come to NPAs to speak directly with councilors, speak during public forum at regular City Council meetings, and email or call them.
