Hello neighbors! We’ve noticed sidewalk conditions are deteriorating along East Ave and Colchester Ave. Local businesses, Centennial Field, and UVM Medical Center drive a ton of pedestrian traffic in the area, and the hazards are especially challenging for seniors and neighbors with disabilities. The danger only increases during icy conditions, so we’re asking Burlington’s Department of Public Works (DPW) to prioritize their repair in 2022.
Check out this meticulous, neighbor-created conditions report for all the details. We’ve also sent this letter to DPW, formalizing our request for help.
We believe neighbor comments sent to DPW supporting our request may help prioritize the repairs. Please call Chapin Spencer at DPW (802-865-5818), or email the addressees in our letter to express your support. Official plans for 2022 construction projects will be announced on April 18.
If you would like more information, please contact Cynthia Cook at firstname.lastname@example.org
