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"

To check out past meeting minutes, work plans and other documents please see our Documents page. For more on our background and history see our History page.

Our next meeting will be Thursday, April 27, 2017, 5:30-7 pm in City Hall Room 12 (enter at street level on Church St.). Pizza will be served.

Presentation: Car Free Sunday (Autovrijie zondag) 20 minutes
To get our collective creative juices flowing for our Open Streets discussion, Stu Lindsay will present a slideshow from his visit to Car Free Sunday in Ghent, Belgium (along with a couple of interesting tangential trips related to bicycling in Belgium-and ultimately Burlington).

Discussion: Ideas for Open Streets 2017 50 minutes
This will be a follow-up discussion to last month’s meeting, focused this time on generating ideas and excitement for Open Streets 2017, as well as how the BWBC can best support it. Bring your ideas for Open Streets events you’d like to see- and help us make them happen!

See you there!
