Comment on a Maker Space proposal for the Moran Plant in Burlington! One of 50 proposals for Burlington’s Public Investment Action Plan (PIAP)
Public Investment Action Plan (PIAP) Open House
Please join the Community & Economic Development Office (CEDO) at an open house to solicit feedback on project concepts received through the City’s Public Investment Action Plan (PIAP). We received fifty concepts during a two-month Request for Concepts period for infrastructure improvements on the waterfront. These will now be reviewed by a Public Investment Team. Finalists will be invited to submit a full proposal this summer. Citizens can review the concepts and comment on them during two day-long open houses with all feedback going to the Public Investment Team for consideration.
Location: Fletcher Free Library, Fletcher Room (upstairs) Dates/Times: Tuesday, May 7th, 9am-9pm, Wednesday, May 8th, 9am-6pm
Questions or need reasonable accommodations? Contact Diana Colangelo at CEDO at email@example.com or 802-865-7187. And stay tuned for information on how to offer feedback online. Check CEDO’s website at www.burlingtonvt.gov/cedo for info as it becomes available.
