Year:
2021
Theme:
Bicycle & Pedestrian, Infrastructure, Safety, Sidewalk, Transit, Transportation
Description:
Final report available here: https://www.oldspokeshome.com/one-mobility-audit The Old North End (ONE) is Burlington’s most economically, ethnically, and socially diverse community. The historically working-class neighborhood is a vibrant collective of arts, food, small business, and community-centered services, and is home to much of Burlington’s lower-income and migrant populations. This neighborhood mobility audit by the Old Spokes Home (bike shop and non-profit) sought to identify transportation investments that will improve pedestrian, bicycle, and transit access for traditionally underserved residents within the ONE to area jobs and essential services. A survey of those residents helped the project team to understand residents’ specific experiences, needs and barriers. Recommendations are made to enhance walking, biking, and transit connections to area jobs and essential services (e.g., shopping, educational centers, medical care facilities, etc.) at a neighborhood level, as well as suggestions on how to involve and engage traditionally underserved populations in planning projects.

Railyard Enterprise Project Supplemental Scoping Final Report

4.8 MB
Year:
2020
Theme:
Transportation
Description:
In early 2013, the City of Burlington, in partnership with the Chittenden County Regional Planning Commission and in close cooperation with the Vermont Agency of Transportation and Federal Highway Administration, initiated the Railyard Enterprise Project (REP). The REP aims to address multimodal safety, mobility, and operational transportation issues and to advance economic development opportunities in the southern waterfront area of Burlington by improving access and mobility through new urban streets. The REP followed an enhanced scoping process under FHWA’s Every Day Counts/Planning and Environmental Linkages (EDC/PEL) initiative. The result of the REP Scoping Study was the selection, by the Burlington City Council, of three REP alternatives to advance into preliminary engineering and permitting under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), a process required for using federal funds to finance transportation projects. This REP Supplemental Scoping Study is a follow-on to the REP Scoping Study and its goal is to further refine and evaluate one of those alternatives, Alternative 1B, and to explore the feasibility of implementing the project without federal funding, using state and local funds only, thereby needing to conduct a complex, lengthy, and costly NEPA process.
