Public input needed on Open Space Survey

Comment period extended to Friday, January 11, 2019!

The Town of Burlington is updating its Open Space and Recreation Plan. The Plan provides a list of the current usable open space and recreation resources, explores and explains community needs, and adopts an action plan for the next seven years to meet those needs. Updating the Open Space and Recreation Plan means the Town remains eligible for state funding, which can be used for land acquisition and protection.

Public input is an important part of the update process to understand community needs.

Back in September, the Town held a workshop and disseminated an online survey to ask residents about why protecting open space is important, what lands need protection, what type of recreation is needed most, and how existing recreation areas could be improved. It is now interested if proposed goals and objectives as well as the 7-year Action Plan will meet the needs residents expressed.

There are different opportunities to review these items and provide feedback on what residents agree with, what should be revised, and what’s missing.

1.       Goals and Objectives and Needs Summary boards at Parks and Recreation Department and Burlington Public Library where residents can fill out comment card

2.       View the Goals and Objectives and Needs Summary boards on the Conservation Department website. Email comments to kmoravec@horsleywitten.com.
