On Thursday, September 7th, CEDO and construction consultant PC Construction gathered with area businesses to discuss disruptions related to Burlington City Place (formerly Burlington Town Center) Construction. The meeting, which included a Q and A section, updated area businesses with information about vehicle routes, parking changes and construction hours.
Stage one of construction which will begin with the demolition of the Cherry Street parking garage is set to last for 12 month, with two subsequent stages lasting another 20 months.
An important focus of the meeting was communicating that despite the construction downtown Burington is still open for business. Businesses should communicate that streets are open, that parking is available and that visitors to the downtown will not be impacted by the construction site.
Parking for both downtown workers and visitors was also a major point of discusssion. The City and development team are encouraging people to check with Park Burlington on parking options, including city garages and leased parking opportunities.
