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 dcolangelo@burlingtonvt.gov 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.
