On Thursday, March 8 the BBA will hold their annual Safety and Security Summit at the Burlington Police Station.  


This year the BBA and the BPD, in partnership with the Church Street Marketplace plan to discuss a number of different issues concerning safety, security and the overall experience in Burlington. Join us at 7:30 AM to hear from  

  • Ron Redmond, Executive Director of the Church Street Marketplace  
  • Matt Young, Director of the Street Outreach Team
  • Chief Schriling of BPD
  • Kelly Devine, Executive Director of the BBA

During the event, which is free for members and includes breakfast from City Markets, participants will be able to learn about, provide feedback and voice concerns about the following issues: 

  • What to expect in the coming year in the areas of safety in Burlington
  • Review of programs that could amplify the downtown experience, such as charity meters
  • Updates on possible security ordinances involving panhandling and trespassing


While this is just a preliminary agenda, you can help set the tone and direction of the meeting by taking our Safety and Security Survey.
