Welcome to the BWBC

The Burlington Walk/Bike Council is an all-volunteer advisory council to the City of Burlington. We work closely with and advise the Department of Public Works and the Department of Parks & Recreation on infrastructure improvements and policy changes for bicycling and walking. The council also leads advocacy efforts and organizes events and activities that promote and celebrate walking and biking in Burlington and beyond. Anyone interested in making Burlington a better and safer place for bicycling and walking is encouraged to attend our meetings generally held on the 4th Thursday of each month in City Hall Room 12.

Find us on Facebook as "The Burlington Walk/Bike Council"

The BWBC will not be having a meeting in December, 2017. Instead we encourage all community members to attend this month's meeting of the Burlington Public Works Commission:

Wed., Dec. 20, 6:30 pm
DPW Conference Room
645 Pine St.

The first main item on the agenda is the switching of the bike lane on Willard St. from northbound to southbound between Maple St. and North St. This requires switching the parking from the west side of the street to the east side. Also on the agenda is the adoption of the Great Streets standards for widths and uses of the rights of way in downtown.

See you there!

The next BWBC meeting is tentatively scheduled for Thursday, January 25, 2018
