Hi:

Interested in a bikable, walkable Burlington?  You can take part in the
historic first step toward that destination as the landmark North Avenue
corridor plan gets it first official public hearing before the City
Council's Transportation, Energy and Utilities Committee (TEUC) on
Wednesday, September 10 at 6 p.m. at the Police Department public meeting
room adjacent to Battery Park on North Avenue.

TEUC Chair Maxwell Tracy recently gave assurance that those attending would
all get a chance to speak on the plan.  The long term improvements include
cycle track (protected bike lanes) throughout the 2.8 mile corridor and
conversion of three of seven signalized intersections to roundabouts which
provide sharply increased safety and sharply reduced delay for all modes.
The plan calls for a world class street with the highest level of safety
for all who walk, bike, and travel by car or transit within and through the
corridor.

Attending this hearing--the City Council expected to act later this month
on the plan--gives you a chance to see first hand the change we have all be
waiting for!

            Tony
