Old North End Bike Connectivity, Pedestrian Safety, Stormwater Management Survey
The City of Burlington and the Chittenden County Regional Planning Commission (CCRPC) are working in partnership with Toole Design Group to evaluate opportunities to improve connectivity for low-stress bicycling routes in the southwest section of the Old North End. Developing routes to connect Battery Park, the Old North End Neighborhood Greenway, and the future Depot Street and Lakeview Terrace Neighborhood Greenways will provide Old North End residents with safe and accessible bike routes. In addition to bikeway connectivity, this project will also identify opportunities to improve pedestrian crossings and enhance stormwater management while minimizing impacts and costs.  
We want to hear from you to help us identify issues and potential connections for conceptual designs that support walking, biking and clean water in the Old North End. The survey can be completed in 5 minutes.

Burlington's Walk Bike Master Plan identified the Rose St / North St / Murray St intersection as a Top 20 Priority Intersection, based on crash data and public input. One of the proposals to improve safety includes raising the intersection, which would increase the visibility of people walking and biking and improve stormwater management and slow traffic through the use of permeable pavers. What is your opinion of this project?


Strongly support
Strongly Oppose
