Final Decision on Housing Action Plan Postponed

The Burlington City Council will seek more public input before approving the Mayor’s Housing Action Plan. At Monday’s City Council Meeting, the plan received praise and criticism from about a dozen speakers. The proposed plan addresses challenges in accessibility, affordability, parking, financing, and the impact of college and university students.  Kelly Devine, Executive Director of the Burlington Business Association, called for approval of the plan. According to the Burlington Free Press, Devine said: “there isn't enough housing stock for pretty much every segment of our community. It's hurting our ability to thrive and grow.”
