Here’s What’s Happening With the Burlington Civic Square Makeover
Back in September of 2018 inhalton.com reported that Burlington’s Civic Square was getting a makeover, one that is expected to cost $600,000.
A public open house was held on Sept. 19, 2018, for residents to view renderings of possible design features, share their feedback, and ask questions.
According to Get Involved Burlington and a project report, more than 300 people provided input. It was discovered that trees and shade, accessibility, public art, Wi-Fi, and seating are the most important features.
It was also noted that residents would like to see Civic Square used for family art nights, farmer’s markets, as a place to sit and relax, fitness activities, photo opportunities, as well as ceremonies and festivals.
“Over the next few months, staff will be working on conceptual designs and adding the features that you told us were important,” reads the Get Involved Burlington website.
However, residents will still have another chance to share their thoughts.
Two more information sessions regarding this project will be happening this spring. They are as follows.
- March 26 from 1 to 3 p.m. at Burlington City Hall in Room 247
- April 3 from 7 to 9 p.m. at Burlington City Hall in Room 305
At these information sessions, residents will be able to view the project design plan and provide feedback.
Throughout the renewal of Civic Square, the design principles listed below will be followed.
- Green and sustainable
- Long lasting
Construction is expected to be completed by the fall of 2019.
