Future of Burlington’s transportation plan, for both people and goods, being decided


Published November 5, 2021 at 11:30 am

The City of Burlington is asking residents and other stakeholders to have a say as they create their first Integrated Mobility Plan (IMP).

The IMP is a long-term planning tool that will help the city make decisions about how people and goods move in and through the community to the year 2051.

Anyone who lives in Burlington, or travels to or through Burlington, is invited to get involved in the next stage of the project — the proposed recommendations for the walking, cycling, car, truck and bus networks for Burlington for the next 30 years.

The StoryMap and survey are on the city website and available for comment for another week, until Nov. 14. This feedback will be shared during a presentation to city council on Dec. 13, at a Special Meeting of the Community Planning, Regulation & Mobility Committee.

People can visit the project page explore the recommendations, participate in the online survey and sign-up for email notices for the project.

In previous stages of the project, staff has used resident feedback to confirm the IMP vision, values and goal statements. Those concepts generally define the desired transportation system for the Burlington of the future.

Staff has also used public feedback to help identify what aspects of the current transportation systems are not in line with where the city wants to end up in the future.

The project page features an interactive story map outlining the project so far, including how residents in Burlington navigate the city and the transportation issues that affect their lives, every day.

The StoryMap walks the reader through five ‘stories’ specific to the IMP for Burlington:

  • Vision, Values and Goals
  • Transportation Today
  • Lived Experiences with Transportation (Living Experience Papers)
  • Problems and Opportunities
  • Our Preferred Network Solution
