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.

This month: Open Streets for 2017

Join the Burlington Walk-Bike Council Thursday, Mar. 23 at 5:30 for an opening discussion of Burlington Open Streets for 2017. Questions to be considered include:

  • What has and has not worked well for Open Streets in previous years?
  • Should Open Streets be its own event, or join with other events (e.g., Old North End Ramble, South End Art Hop) - or should it do both?
  • Should there be more than one Open Streets even this year, and if so, where and when?
  • What should the event(s) look like?
  • Who can work on making them happen?

When: Thursday, March 23, 5:30 to 7 pm

Where: Department of Public Works Conference Room at 645 Pine St.

See you there!
